Resumen

CHAVEZ ARELLANO, María Eugenia. Female Migration Experiences: Yucatecan Women in Los Angeles. Migr. Inter [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.4, pp.69-99. ISSN 2594-0279.

The aim of this paper is to present the initial results of a study on Maya-Yucatecan migrant women who have settled permanently in Los Angeles, California. The reasons that led them to migrate are addressed as well as the way they came to the United States and joined the work force. Certain aspects that permitted their insertion into Los Angeles society are highlighted, together with identity recovery practices to show that adaptation to the host culture is slow, irregular and incomplete, but enough for them to deploy survival strategies. The paper is based on the assumption that female migration lends this phenomenon specific characteristic that warrant special attention. Accordingly, the analysis of the document is based on an interpretation of the meaning of the actions, for which the content of ten in-depth interviews conducted in Los Angeles in 2012 was used.

Palabras llave : migrant women; causes of migration; identity; Mexico; California.
