About this book

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.

Reviews

"Contested Voices is a compelling and up-to-date book about women and immigration. Marianne Githens' gripping accounts reveal the global immigration dilemmas facing us today and the pressures and policies that got us here. By highlighting the intersecting impacts of gender, race, ethnicity, and religion, Contested Voices provides an important guide to understanding contemporary immigration issues and points to solutions for how we might best resolve the problems." - Shira Tarrant, Associate Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, California State University, USA

"Contested Voices is a must read for all interested in understanding the complex and gendered nature of immigration. Marianne Githens explores the numerous challenges confronting immigrant women and analyzes how these agents (re)construct their identities in the face of these constraints. Githens's tour de force is her examination of an impressive range of immigration experiences from a comparative and intersectional perspective." - Aleksandra Sznajder Lee, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Richmond, USA
