There is always a market ready to capitalize on migrants, especially on women. Migrant women are faced with multiple sets of exploitation and exclusion in the globalized economy. This is particularly true as structures, such as public institutions, policies, and accepted narratives, contribute to making this violence – and the people who are the target of it - invisible.
This event's speakers are engaged in collectives offering support and organizing movements, working to create broad social change. They will speak of how racism, sexism, and gender-based violence function in conjunction with class exploitation to further disenfranchise migrant communities. And importantly, how can solidarity avoid the pitfalls related to "empowering" or "teaching" migrant women workers?
