Abstract

In this paper we propose, for the Italian context, to establish whether there are any gender differences between men and women from two countries, Ghana and Egypt, whether these change due to the experience of migration and, if so, how much and in what direction this event changes the position of each of the persons involved compared to the others. In general, the protagonism of the foreigners women is the reproposal of the assumption of consolidated gender roles against the backdrop of the scenario of migration, but with a decidedly original character compared to what might normally be expected in the countries of origin.
