Women and immigration

Throughout the immigration process, women are often the most affected and burdened. Women are often considered to be responsible for caregiving within their families by the rules assigned through societal norms, and for maintaining their culture in the new environment, as well as contributing to the economic welfare of their family. While gender roles and familial roles often need renegotiation as a result of immigration, unfortunately that does not always seem to happen and women are still held to these roles.

This case study is an introduction to how women in particular are affected in the immigration process. For more information on just immigration, these links may be helpful.
