Abstract

Social interventions designed and implemented at service provision for migrated women, produce domination effects by means of strategies of social differentiation that have significant effects in the field of subjectivity, and that are important to elucidate. Parting from the study of social practices and discourses deployed within the services that attend migrant women in Barcelona, we can observe the processes of subjectification in terms of gender, national origin and socioeconomic status. These processes have as one of its main effects the constitution of the social category "woman of the third world" (Mohanty, 2003), a subject that -understood like "the cultural other"- is necessary to educate in order to promote social and labour insertion in the society of reception, evading the particular experiences and, in much cases, the social inequallitiies present in the context taht affect their lives.
