The Power of Definitions: Immigrant Women and Problem-Centered Ideologies
Department of Sociology, University of Umeå, Sweden.

Abstract [en]

  

In the early 1980's a new type of critique became visible within feminist research. Theories and concepts which had been developed by Western feminism were critisized as being ethnocentric and judged inadequate for an understanding of minority women. The debate took place foremost in the USA and Britain, but bas also become influential in other European countries. In this article Aleksandra Ålund argues that the dominant conception of immigrant women as “problem/victim” in Swedish public debate might contribute to limit their possibilities of seeing and using their own resources. She suggests a more subtle approach, where the potential of immigrant women especially as expressed in daily life - is given a more central place.
