Reviews

“Espin and Dottolo provide the field with important information about the unique ways that migration affects women and, therefore, entire communities. … The editors succeed in producing a work that is ‘contextual, reflexive and relevant’ … . Written for anyone interested in feminist psychology, migration, immigration, or intersectionality, this text may inform the therapy room or the classroom. It should also help revise policy so that immigration legislation may progress from a position of oppression to one of empowerment.” (Geneva Reynaga-Abiko, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (1), January, 2016)
