Från Afghanistan till Sverige: En kvalitativ studie om att vara kvinna i två olika världar
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This study aims at finding out how it is to be a woman in two different realities. I have met adult women who were raised in Afghanistan and came to Sweden as refugees with their families.
The aim is to see similarities and differences between being a woman in the two countries. Part of the aim is to see how the role as a female is reconstructed out of the influence from both Afghanistan and Sweden.
To help me understand the result I used an intersectional perspective. I investigated into the hierarchy between men and women in the society and how the construction of gender and power can effect each other.
The most outstanding result was how women took control over and stood up for themselves when they moved to Sweden.
