    Abstract

    This research attempts to explore the plurality of voices of everyday lives of three immigrant women who are seeking to be settled in Ireland. The connection between thinking and living with the prospect of space and self are seeing in the paper in dialectical division of self and space, which space is verified in geographical manner. Analysis of texts reviewed in the research is based on existential viewpoint with the linkage to migration phenomenon to reflect on authentic life and existence, free and responsible choices and options. Place and space, being seen as home beyond geography and history draw in philosophy of language and existentialism. Methodology of the research explores a strategy of feminist research in the area of migration and authentic life, to achieve an analytical and liberator criterion of study. Ontology of the paper is exploring in the sharing of observational approach of four women included of me who are immigrants in Ireland. The epistemology of the research paper as knowledge will be formed through the examining some lived experience with giving voice to silenced stories; throughout doing the investigation. Findings in the research scrutinize interviews with three immigrant women in Ireland who tell their authentic stories hinged on their authentic existence. This research intended to produce some useful knowledge in the area of migration, authentic - freed being, free choices, and marginalization. Since the numbers of the participants in the research were quite few; it was a deep study, and a suggestion for the term migration which can be used as designation of freedom with a feminist view and action.
