Dodał/a książkę:Wojciech Polak
Focusing on Asian women's experience of immigration, the contributions in this book collectively highlight the gendered dimension of migration, the different experiences of men to women and the subsequent consequences for women within the constraints of the root culture and the strategies deployed to make life more bearable in the host country. The central theme discussed is the fact that immigrant women are unable to completely break away from the chains of traditional patriarchal norms, imposed by either their host country or root culture. Immigrant women's identity is, therefore, far more fluid and regulated by both social and state insitutions they encounter.
