Our Partner, Migrant Women Press, is an independent media outlet created to give visibility to migrant and refugee women’s stories, especially black women, women of colour, and women from marginalised communities. Their aim is to guarantee that migrant and refugee women tell their stories for themselves.
Women in displacement face a number of challenges, including family separation, psychosocial stress and trauma, health complications – particularly for pregnant women, physical harm, risks of exploitation and gender-based violence. As women also often serve as the main caretakers for children and elderly members of the family, it deepens their need for protection and support.
Hence, Guiti News and Migrant Women Press believe that bringing light to the challenges women in exile and in transit face, as well as celebrating their accomplishments, is vital.
