The Women Impacted By US Border & Immigration Laws

Under the current administration the US has been developing and maintaining border and immigration policies that impact women around the world. Whether it’s those being separated from their families under family separation laws, those struggling to gain access to asylum in the US after fleeing domestic violence situations, those unable to access proper reproductive care abroad, or those banned from entering the country under current travel policy, women continue to be on the receiving end of policies largely created and enforced by men. This entirely female-led panel will give an intimate and firsthand look at the ways in which these and other US border policies and immigration laws are impacting women around the world and, importantly, what’s next.
