    Teresa (aged 73) left Portugal in 1970 to France.   

    At the age of sixteen, Teresa migrated from her village of origin, in the Portuguese countryside, to Lisbon as she was having health problems. In Lisbon she worked as a maid until moved to France (Grenoble) when she was 21 years old, in 1970. 

    During her interview, she declares that she took part in actions against human exploitation, fascism and in favour of sex equality.

    For her, the object that best represents her migration experience is a newspaper
