Synopsis
This study has made use of historical records, census data, and in-depth interviews with 120 first-generation women to generate a detailed portrayal of the demographics of South Asian women immigrants and their lived experiences. The text begins with a discussion of the major theoretical issues in studying South Asian women in Canada and the impact of Canadian immigration policy on this group of women. It goes on to provide a profile of these women and their socio-demographic context of their everyday lives in three domains: work in the home; work outside the home; and participation in community organizations, notably religious and cultural organizations.
