Abstract

This research focused on Burmese women who migrated to Australia after the 1988 riots in Burma. A large group of Burmese settled in Western Australia and the majority of them resided in Perth metropolitan and suburban areas. With deep rooted cultural and traditional backgrounds guided by religious teaching, the family is the most salient unit in Burmese communities. This dissertation sought to explore migrants from Burma by specifically focusing on the women's experience and their perspectives in sustaining their families in Perth.
