Women Immigrants in Today's World
|Publication Date||May 2013|
|Formats||Hardcover Ebook (PDF) Ebook (EPUB) Paperback|
A comprehensive and stimulating examination of how the migration of women affects attitudes in receiving countries, among the women themselves, and how changing women's attitudes shapes their relations with men and between generations within ethnic groups. Sensitive to differences between receiving countries and immigrant ethnic communities, Contested Voices explores fraught dynamics through comparisons among similar immigrant communities within the United States, Canada, Britain, and Germany, providing insights into the processes of adaptation. It focuses particularly on how and why immigration policies, including towards legal and illegal immigrants, refugees and asylum, are gendered and on their influence on immigrant communities.
