Circles of Sisterhood
International Women's Day 2020
Refugee women's groups and their supporters gathered in ten cities across the UK to sing in solidarity with women who are seeking safety here.
14 February 2020 - Birmingham
At the third National Refugee Women’s Conference, this time in Birmingham, we came together for an inspiring programme of workshops, discussions and performances to build our energy and skills to create change. The conference was hosted by Women with Hope, WAST Manchester, CARAG, Refugee Women Connect, Women for Refugee Women and other grassroots groups.
We launched research that documents the experiences of over 100 destitute asylum-seeking women. This evidence shows that destitution is a deliberate policy designed to harm vulnerable women and prevent them from rebuilding their lives with dignity.
