"Feminism and Migration: Cross-Cultural Engagements" is a rich,
original, and diverse collection on the intersections of feminism
and migration in western and non-western contexts. This book
explores the question: does migration empower women? Through
wide-ranging topics on theorizing feminism in migration, contesting
identities and agency, resistance and social justice, and religion
for change, well-known and emerging scholars provide in-depth
analysis of how social, cultural, political, and economic forces
shape new modalities and perspectives among women upon migration.
It highlights the centrality of the various meanings and
interpretations of feminism(s) in the lives of immigrant and
migrant women in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Eastern Europe,
France, Greece, Japan, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, Papua New Guinea,
Spain, and the United States. The well-researched chapters explore
the ways in which feminism and migration across cultures relate to
women's experiences in host societies --- as women, wives, mothers,
exiles, nuns, and workers---and the avenues of interactions for
change. Cross-cultural engagements point to the convergence and
even disjunctures between (im)migrant and non-immigrant women that
remain unrecognized in contemporary mainstream discourses on
migration and feminism. "
