Description

Conducted under the auspices of Filef (the Italian Federation of Emigrant Workers and their Families), the project focuses on the experiences of marriage and emigration of women born in Italy and now living in South Australia. The interviews are designed to give the interviewees the opportunity to reflect on their experiences and to express their thoughts about the future. The study also attempts to emphasise that Italo-Australian women were not passive victims of emigration but that they responded creatively and resourcefully to an alien society and in so doing have become active members of it, although their activity has of necessity assumed forms that have not been visible to members of the mainstream society.
