The main purpose of this study is to find a new meaning on "home" for unmarried single women in the new era. In the past, facing the traditional conception of home, women were chained a lot of aspect, however, with the continuous improvements of the social status、 education opportunities, and economic capacity, they have new plans now. This study focuses on those unmarried single women who came from different cities or countryside in Taiwan but move to Taipei just for their careers, co that we may understand more clearly their idea of “home” through their own experiences. These women leave their hometowns and have another “new home” of their own. Yet, how are the conditions of this “new home” connected with the original family and the previous living space environment during the process of moving from their hometowns to their new residences?
This study analyzes the specific meaning of home through the qualities and functions of home, and then uses qualitative study interviews with 10 subjects, by comparing their original families, their previous living space and their present living environments, in order to figure out their so-called “ideal home”.
Through analyses and the deep interviews above, this study comes to a conclusion that for these modern unmarried single women, the notions of home are greatly different from the traditional ones. In their eyes, a “home” is a self-relaxing and absolute free space; it can be mobile, and it is no longer an airtight restraint. They have entirely re-annotated their true and ideal home!
