Introduction

A particular system or a process is being introduced by Holmes through this study; this is a notional system under which the women along with their social relationships and networks neighbors and relatives and friends manipulate these aspects to created their own experiences and senses in their respective imaginations of immigration status, economic well being, politics, religion and culture.
