"The Moon in Foreign Countries Is Particularly Round and Bright"--Narratives of Chinese Immigrant Women in the UK
Yuen, Jenny K. S.
Compare: A Journal of Comparative Education, v38 n3 p295-306 Jun 2008
This paper attempts to unfold the unheard stories of Chinese women immigrants and to explore the effects of their cultural values on their adjustment needs during their migration process in Britain. According to Chinese tradition, Chinese women are to be submissive and they are neglected in the Chinese community. For Chinese women migrants, their experiences suggest that they are "invisible" in British society. I intend to employ narrative inquiry to illustrate the life story of a woman immigrant's, weaving her narratives into that of my own experiences. These stories may resonate for readers from similar cultural contexts. The research findings may also help government or policy makers to mediate the adjustment issues of this community without undermining their specific cultural values. (Contains 2 notes.)
