Abstract

Malmö has undergone major changes over the past 100 years, as the history books tell us. But what areas have been covered in the city’s documented history? Whose stories have been included and which stories have been left out? The project ‘100 Years of Immigrant Women’s Lives and Work in Sweden’ studied this question closely. The official account of history has largely neglected the women’s perspective, and especially the experiences of immigrant women. During the period 2013-2016, ‘Women Making History’ sought to fill some of these gaps. Via a wide range of collaborative means – such as oral narrative, archive studies, photo workshops, meetings around town and exhibitions – the stories of women from differing backgrounds and of differing ages have emerged. Through their lives and work, these women have constantly helped shape and re-shape Malmö. Their experiences of public and cultural life in the city, however, have varied. The voices of immigrant women must be heard. This is about women making history – which we prefer to call Women Making HerStory.
