Despite the growth of studies that recognize that women migrate, it is not possible to say that most of them are feminist, or that they address the diversity of the migration experience. In general, the migration of qualified female workers continues invisibly. This article takes a feminist standpoint and examines the contributions of feminist epistemologies to studies on the mobility of women scientists. Based on qualitative interviews with foreign scientists in Portugal, we discuss issues such as sexism and racism in Portuguese academia. As the article’s authors, we identify ourselves as Latin American immigrants and feminist academics based in Portugal and define the place from which we speak and the context in which this work has been constructed.

Keywords: Feminism, Feminist epistemology, Scientific mobility, Postcolonial studies
