Based on a qualitative study of 60 Mexican women and men with histories of incestuous relationships, Dr. Gloria González-López discusses her preliminary findings with regard to family life, incest, and sexual violence within the context of immigration. She shares preliminary reflections with regard to a process she identifies as "transnational incest" to examine the ways in which migration, settlement, and return migration may become part of the nuanced and complex contexts surrounding women's and men's experiences of incestuous experiences (both voluntary and involuntary) in Mexican society. González-López met and conducted in-depth interviews with these adult women and men in Ciudad Juárez, Guadalajara, Mexico City, and Monterrey in 2005 and 2006, and established contact with them through the generous support of activists, women's groups, community organizers, and other professionals.
