Abstract

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.
