Feminine migration might be considered as a way to emancipation and a great possibility to achieve both professional and private fulfillment. Migration can radically change the meaning of femininity and can strongly affect the traditional role of women. The correlation between migration and gender roles cannot be ignored when analyzing the migratory project due to their mutual influence. The main aim of the research was to find out if Polish women in Norway consider their migration as a way to emancipation.
