Abstract

This study examines the situation of Nigerian women in America depicted by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah in terms of how they are subjugated and marginalized in their day to day lives. It also investigates the problems and hurdles faced by Nigerian women in their own and American society due to migration and immigration.  The study, furthermore, delineates the suppression of the desires and needs of Nigerian women and lays bare how it affects them. By deploying the theoretical paradigm of impression management with an exclusive focus on gender issues, this study highlights how the socio-domestic progress of Nigerian women is impeded in the name of culture and race.  Finally, the study reflects on the ability of Nigerian women to convert their miseries into opportunities. It is, therefore, a picture of both their strengths and weaknesses that reveal the potential of these women which the world needs to appreciate. The paper tries to find the true picture of the miserable life of female immigrants with some of the applicable solutions.
