Abstract

This doctoral thesis is a comparative study which examines Brazilian and Pakistani migrant women’s lived experiences of honour consciousness, and how its gendered dimensions are manifested among these women in Australia. It draws upon 30 qualitative interviews with Brazilian (Christian) and Pakistani (Muslim) women living in Australia.

This thesis provides greater meaning to women’s lived experiences through a Hegelian framework of honour consciousness, conflated with Foucault’s conceptualisation of “regimes of truth” and “power.” This episteme explains how these migrant women’s lived experiences of honour consciousness and religion translate, impacting gender politics in Australia.
