Abstract [en]

This article aims a critical reading of autobiographies, particularly from a feminist point of view.  But also, on how interpret narrations as witness in society. The text follows a biography Behind my mother’s street by Alexandra Pascalidou, A literal piece, in which the author tells about her feelings and experiences into being immigrant. In other words, about racism in Sweden. A possible conclusion is that immigrant’ s and women’s integration in the Swedish labour market is coloured by racial discrimination. However the emancipation’ struggle is not yet accepted in juridical’s level.

Abstract [es]

Este artículo trata acerca de cómo leer autobiografías desde una perspectiva de las ciencias sociales, específicamente desde una mirada feminista. En Siguiendo los pasos de mi madre (2001) Alexandra Pascalidou cuenta sus experiencias como extranjera. Específicamente habla acerca del racismo que padecen algunas personas en Estocolmo, Suecia. Una conclusión posible es que la integración de las mujeres extranjeras al mercado de trabajo en Suecia, esta muy empañada de discriminación racial. Ademas de ser definida, la lucha por la justicia social, como contradictoria a nivel judicial.
