Migrant Women / Women Refugees

Policies related to women with migration or refugee experiences are measures aimed at addressing the unique challenges and vulnerabilities faced in these populations. These policies acknowledge that migrant women and women refugees often encounter additional barriers, including discrimination, violence, and limited access to resources. The overarching goal for these municipal policies is to create inclusive urban environments where these women have equal opportunities for social, economic, and political participation, ensuring their safety, well-being, and integration into the city's fabric. By implementing policies that consider the specific needs of migrant women and women refugees, cities can contribute to a more diverse, equitable, and welcoming society, embodying the principles of gender equality and social justice.
