Abstract

Based on interviews with 25 highly educated South Asian immigrant women working as home-based entrepreneurs within ethnic enclaves in Toronto, this article demonstrates how the women are engaged in reconfiguring gendered relations and community ties in response to the domination and marginalisation they often experience at home and in the Canadian labour market.
