Example text

Thus, the newly arising individualism among China’s younger generation seems to be ‘under constant negotiation with the traditional ideologies’ (Liu 2007: 136). Thus superficially similar trends in different parts of the world – later marriage, more divorce, more women working – may not have the same meaning or consequences in countries with different cultural traditions and histories. We may live in a globalized, latemodern world, but not everyone’s modernity is the same (Rofel 1999) and it cannot therefore be assumed that modernization will have the same consequences for women’s intimate lives world-wide.

Tyner (1996) has pointed out, the growth of ‘entertainment migration’ in the 1980s was related to the decline of sex tours of Japanese men to the Philippines. Campaigns against sex tourism, organized by religious and women’s rights groups in both Japan and the Philippines, however, ‘did not eliminate the “demand” for sexual excursions, but merely forced a shift in venue’ (Tyner 1996: 84). Filipinas, whose images had been constructed as ‘exotic, docile, sensual and cheerful’, were imported to Japan to participate in the growing domestic sex industry.

Pessar and Sarah J. Mahler (2003: 817), proposing the framework of ‘gendered geographies of power’, suggest that we study ‘not only how people’s social locations affect their access to resources and mobility across transnational spaces, but also their agency as initiators, refiners and transformers of these locations’. They also emphasize that ‘social agency’ should include corporeal agency such as migration as well as cognitive processes like imagination and mind work. In sum, this chapter will examine the sexual agency of migrant women without losing sight of the various kinds of structural constraints they face while crossing borders and stretching life horizons.
