Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Experiences of Mexican Immigrant Women Living in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area
by Williams Soberanes, Claudia, M.A., The George Washington University, 2012, 96; 1517163
Abstract (Summary)

Despite the increasing flow of women migrating from Mexico to the United States and the recognition of this phenomenon in the most up-to-date literature, only a few studies have included the voices and experiences of Mexican immigrant women in particular. A central aim of this project is to make visible the experiences of a sample of Mexican women living in the Washington metropolitan area. This project is a first step towards understanding their challenges and opportunities, but it is also an effort to learn more about what brought them to the United States capital, a question that is especially interesting because Mexicans are less likely than other Latin American groups to settle in Washington.
