Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Education (EdD)


According to tradition, Chinese women are submissive; they are neglected in the UK Chinese community and relatively invisible in British society. Whilst there is sufficient evidence to support the view that Chinese women immigrants experience difficulties in their daily lives, little is known about these women as a unique group. This qualitative narrative inquiry sets out the untold stories of three Chinese immigrant women, including the researcher, and explores the influence of their cultural values on their adjustment needs during their settlement in Britain.
