Abstract

This article examines the experiences of paid work and unpaid work of recent Mainland Chinese immigrant women in Hong Kong by looking at how institutional and social organizational processes in Hong Kong affect immigrant women. Using information derived from in-depth interviews of 20 recent Mainland Chinese immigrant women and selected family members, the paper investigates how these women's lives have been transformed due to differences in the social organization of paid and unpaid work, as well as discriminatory policies and practices that underline their experiences.
