Conform or resist? Immigrant females and consumer empowerment

Publication Date


This research explores how purchasing choices are renegotiated by immigrant women as they transition in their cultural roles from a wife within a patriarchal consanguine family to a nuclear family based on equality. In particular, by focusing on the immigrant wife we will illustrate how various acts of consumption offer these women not only a means to resist their husband’s patriarchy but also assert their power within family purchases.
