研究結果發現，雖然外籍配偶在家中受到重重的限制，但是她們不會因此而噤聲，而是會發展出各種手段來對抗父權。此外，她們雖然遠嫁來台，但是她們仍舊保持著和原生社會的聯繫，運用兩個社會中的資源賴以生存，並且也因她們跨界流動的身份，發展出超越在地的家的意象。 Globalization links our living closely to every place in the world while on the other side it changes the traditional life style. Nowadays there is a group of people who need to travel from countries to countries for work or life. To the original and host societies, these people give a new definition of “home”. In Taiwan, there is such a group called “Foreign Brides” .
This research takes Vietnamese foreign brides in PingTung “Y” county as the research topic and uses documents, in-depth interviews and observation as research methods to conduct this qualitative research. In this research, these objective experiences from foreign brides revel how they overcome the barriers inside and outside the houses after they got married to a foreign country and how they redefine “home” after migrating and immigrating to the host society.
In conclusion, these foreign brides have developed means of strategies to be against the patriarchy as well as kept good connection with their original society despite restrictions on them to make use of resources in two countries. Because of the distinctive cross-country identity, they also developed a new concept of home which is more than the origin.
