This book draws on feminist research to argue that migration is accompanied by a renegotiation of gender relations in decision-making processes concerning domestic budgeting, household labor and control over personal income. Using Liberian immigrant couples in Canada as a case study, the book identifies concepts of gendered citizenship, such as employment, freedom, male and female equality, and language as critical factors which influence changing gender relations in the context of transnationalism. Secondarily, it posits that by granting resettlement opportunities to couples from some developing countries, where gender oppression is rampant, Canada is indirectly contributing to the promotion of gender equality.
