Abstract:My study explored the post migration experience of Somali female refugees located in Atlanta, Georgia. Somali refugees began arriving in the United States since a civil war broke out in Somalia in 1991 and during the early and mid 2000s Somalis became the largest refugee group entering the US. Because women make up nearly 50% of this incoming group, and because gender is an important factor in how migration and resettlement are experienced, this paper examines the post migration experience from a woman’s perspective. The Somali community in Atlanta, Georgia is used as case study site because it is one of the oldest Somali communities in America and has a relatively large and stable Somali population. My study provides a comprehensive overview of basically three components of the post migration experience of fifty-eight Somali women. Data were gained through the use of a questionnaire survey, and both qualitative and quantitative research methods were applied. First the initial migration history of the respondents was explored. Second their adaptation and adjustment strategies as well as spatial preferences in the United States were examined. The third point of analysis contrasts the post migration experience of Somali Bantu respondents, a sub-ethnic group, with their mainstream Somali counterparts.
