Life narratives were collected from immigrant women through five individual interviews and three focus groups as part of an on-going study of sexuality and gender-related issues among immigrant/refugee women in North America. The research explores how questions of national identity and sexual identity are determined and negotiated for immigrant and refugee women and the role of 'geography' and language in understanding women's boundary and border crossings. Four life stories are discussed in detail, as illustrative of disparate adaptations to migration, and suggestions are made for the future development of research in this area.
