Product Description

In complex societies with a quasi-natural division of labour and social inequality, human constructiveness is set by powerful preconfigured forces in a dominant social system in terms of caste, class, gender, religion and ethnicity. In such conditions, it is interesting to study how ethnic minority women, from lower social strata, struggle against these socioeconomic differences. This project is based on research conducted on minority Indian Tamil women in Sri Lanka, and the active role they played in international migration to join the global work force. Using an ethnographic approach, this study illuminates the pragmatic significance regarding how migrant women, as active agents, restructure social structures.
