Join Road To Refuge and the Refuge Advocacy Network for a feminist panel discussion on the issues facing asylum seeker and refugee women.
The physical, sexual and psychological abuse suffered by female asylum seekers in detention centres is a major women’s rights issue, as is the discrimination they face on the basis of their gender in the legal system and in the community.
Recognising that the challenges and discrimination asylum seeker and refugee women specifically face is an intersectional feminist issue is imperative to create support for these women and bring about essential change.
We are incredibly honoured to welcome our panelists;
Emily Singh (ASRC)
Pamela Curr (ASRC)
Zakia Baig (AHWEN)
Facilitated by Karen Pickering (Cherchez La Femme).
Please join us for a complimentary drink after the panel.
