Migration and the Transformation of Work Processes: Voices of Chinese Immigrant Women in Canada

Guida Man


Using feminist conceptual framework
and methodology, this study examines
the experience of thirty Chinese immigrant
women in Canada. It
demonstrates how their subjective
experiences are articulated to the
larger social, economic, and political
relations in the form of institutional
and organizational processes. In
particular, it investigates how the differences in the social organization of
paid work and household work in
Canada vis-à-vis their home country
have tremendous impact on them,
transforming their everyday lives.
