This chapter focuses on another historical source of gender change: a powerful wave of immigration into the United States. It begins by discussing the competing patterns of gender differentiation that immigrants brought and the ways in which immigration infused American gender culture with individual transformation and social diversity. The chapter also explores the challenges to gender orthodoxy, and how new immigrants met postmodernity and magnified the force of gender change.

Keywords:   gender change, immigration, gender differentiation, American gender culture, social diversity, gender orthodoxy, postmodernity
