Gendered Stories of Adaptation and Resistance: A Feminist Multiple Case Study of Immigrant Women


This multiple qualitative case study with eight immigrant women examined women's stories of migration and post-relocation adjustment to the U.S. The results showed that women described their lived experiences in distinctly gendered terms. The four superordinate themes that were present in their stories were Gendered Adaptation, Gendered Resilience, Gendered Violence, and Gendered Discrimination. Implications of these results for counseling practice, research, and advocacy are discussed. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
