Women and Migration(s): Redefining Resistance: "Joy" as Resistance Part II

women and migrations

Women have been part of global and historical movements of people, to escape war, to avoid persecution, for work, for security. Women have been uprooted, stolen, trafficked, enslaved; they have been displaced from land despoiled of resources and habitats lost to extreme weather patterns and climate change. In these 7th and 8th sessions of the eight-part series, we will continue to explore the importance of photography, art, film, history, law, policy and writing in identifying and remembering these migratory experiences.  Speakers will include Jennifer Bajorek, Bridget Cooks, Michèle Pearson Clarke, Ana Teresa Fernandez, Carolina Mayorga, Muna Muhammad, Roshini Kempadoo, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn, Peju Alatise, and Qiana Mestrich.
