I'm a French women and I'm doing a research paper about: "the role of women in Americanization." I have the feeling that women's part in assimilation is essential and I'd like to demonstrate that the US government is aware of that. I'm looking for a list of laws the US government had passed in favor of immigrant women or aiming at immigrant women. Any help and information would be greatly appreciate. Thanks. Claire

To learn about laws that "the US government had passed in favor of immigrant women or aiming at immigrant women," I recommend that a good place to start would be immigrant women's groups. That said, I suggest that you contact the following:

1.) National Network of Immigrant & Refugee Rights.

2.) The National INS Raids Task Force.

3.) Asian Immigrant Women's Association-- or something like that. It's based in San Fransisco and run by a wonderful, smart woman named Young Shin.

I hope these lead you in the right direction.


Amy
