En el camino : Central American women’s migration experiences
MetadataShow full item record
Over the past fifteen years, tens of thousands of women from the Northern Triangle region of Central America have migrated to the U.S. to flee gang violence, poverty, corruption, and domestic violence. The limited evidence available suggests that Central American women have a distinct migration experience due to the dangers they face traveling clandestinely through Mexico, and due to gender-specific choices, barriers and opportunities. Using semi-structured interviews, this pilot study examines the decision to leave the country of origin, the experience of the over-land journey to the United States, and participants’ understanding of the impact of their migration. Interviews will be interpreted and coded using an Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis methodology. Preliminary themes from the analysis of one interview are presented.
