Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to find out how a few different women with a Roma heritage sees their to succeed possibilities in Sweden.

To illustrate these issues has an hermeneutical approach been used. Materials were collected through interviews with Romani women in a municipality in western Sweden. The material created during the interview sessions is based on the five interviewees' interpretations of how they look at their life and the recognition of Roma people.

The interview results show that Roma women have gone through various changes linked to school, language, family, work. Young women and their parents have become more aware that education is an important capital to invest in, in order to later obtain a good job and future. When it comes to school the results show that Roma children have become better at reading but there is still some Roma children who do not attend school, even though there is their native language, Romani, in many schools. Furthermore, the results show that the cooperation between home and school is still not good. With the recognition of Roma, Roma got their own national day and information on Romani at different authorities. However, books still lack on novel Chib. Despite recognition of the Roma as a minority group in Sweden, the results show that there is still discrimination against Roma people in the labor market. The results were used as a basis for the analysis based on theoretical approaches: Bourdieu, social and symbolic capital, individualization of women Beck & Beck-Gernsheim, "We and "the others "of Ålund respectability of Skeggs and Nancy Fraser recognition and redistribution
