Abstract

To be a migrant woman includes different meanings: it means to be a breadwinner woman for personal or familiar decision; it means to be wife of an husband who will join her in the arrival country dealing with all the uncertainities of the labor market; it means to be a mother that drags her sons to an unknown new country or that fights daily to keep in touch with them when they leave overseas; but above all it means to be a woman that deals day by day with the cultural negotiation and with those stereotypes usually related with migration, doing it for herself and in order to create a better relationship with the arrival society. All these aspects are part of the interview done in february 2007 to a peruvian woman that lives in Naples since many years now and that is the main object of this article.
