Current scholarship generally portrays Romanian immigrant women as passive followers of their male counterparts. But in reality, Romanian women were active participants in the immigration experience. By analyzing documents that record information about Romanian immigrant women, we may begin to comprehend how women influenced family decisions, including whether to emigrate from Romania, how the families adjusted to their new lives, and whether to remain in the United States. Romanian women’s influence on emigration and their eventual presence in America contributed to the permanency of Romanian culture and traditions in the United States.
