Discrimination processes of female qualified professionals and immigrants in typically male labour contexts
The increase in female migratory independent flows continues to coexist with deep inequalities based, in particular, in forms of horizontal, vertical and transversal segregation. This article seeks to explore the processes of double discrimination – gender and immigration – as understood by a group of qualified immigrant women working in Portugal in the academic areas of engineering, a typically male context. The research is based on a qualitative study and aims to contribute to the discussion of how is (or is not) promoted the professional gender equality, in a particular context, and portray the potential genderspecific discrimination that can be associated with the immigration experience.
