Maternal Rights (8 min. engl.)
For many years Women in Exile & Friends have been making summer tours to different German federal states to connect with other refugee women*, especially those living in lager. This summer we will move to Hamburg, Bremen and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
We want to empower refugee women* to become politically active, in order to fight for their rights as women* living in this society. We also want to address the question of opening political structures to refugee women*. Our main political fight is against the lager system. We believe the shared and isolated accommodations work as a catalyst to sexual violence, traumas and depressions leading to (attempted) suicides.
We want to:
- bring into public isolation, racism, sexism, reports on traumas on those experiencing sleepless nights for fear of deportation and the effects of the corona pandemic.
- encourage and network with refugee women*, groups and individuals working with refugee women*.
- break borders preventing our participation and build bridges to connect us to communities.
- be given the opportunity to choose where we want to live in dignity.
- connect with the refugee women* fighting for their children‘s right to birth certificates.
