This paper is based on a case study of the interactions between Yunnan women who migrated to Village C because of marriage, their family members and relationship with the community in Village C, in northern Anhui Province. The study has identified three phases in the construction process of the women's social capital, each with its own characteristics according to differences in the social environment and family conditions. However, all three phases share the same action processes conversion of economic and cultural capital into social capital and reproduction based on the original social capital. This supports, to some extent, Pierre Bourdieu's capital transformation theory. In addition, when combining the three phases together, the social capital building process reflects a mode of involution.
