"As the authors illustrate, both place and gender matter greatly, shaping the barriers encountered, the range of opportunities presented, how familial expectations are negotiated, and the broader contexts within which women care for their families and build new forms of community."

"Through rich description and careful analysis, especially from a critical feminist and intersectional perspective, the contributors to this volume inform our understanding of the challenges and successes that immigrant women encounter in the processes of settlement and integration. […] This wonderful feminist collection will make a valuable contribution to Women's Immigration, Canadian Immigration Patterns, and Feminist Studies."

Reflowable eTextbooks respond to the size of the device they are viewed on, much like a typical website. This causes them to look different from a traditional book. They may also contain embedded audio, video, or interactive components in addition to the RedShelf Reader’s standard study tools.
What is a Fixed Layout eBook?
A fixed layout eTextbook maintains the look and the feel of a printed textbook. The text is fixed, and the screen size determines the size of the text. These eTextbooks work best on large-screen devices and do not contain any embedded media or interactive content.
