After analysing the speeches, it becomes clear to see that the way the party leaders talk about these two collective identities are rather oversimplified and adverse. Despite deriving from different parties and different ideologies, the party leaders share a somewhat similar way of talking about both “women” and “migrants” even though there are some major differences as well. It becomes evident that “migrant women” are the more or less stuck between the two collective identities “women” and “immigrants”, exclusion does take place. (Less)
