By providing empirical as well as historical evidence, Habiba Zaman undertakes a rigorous analysis of immigrant womens commodification and the possibility of their decommodification in Canada. In order to present a comprehensive picture of commodification, this book uses empirical as well as historical evidence to explore the relationship between transnational migration and globalization, a relationship that sets the trajectory for immigrant womens commodification.

Breaking the Iron Wall looks at the detailed lived experiences of immigrant women, expertly revealing the intersections of race, gender, and class and exposing the forces and processes of commodification in public and private spheres.
