refugee women

Last month, a fisherman in Lesvos, Greece told me that there have always been refugees coming. The past 16 years, they've been coming. The big difference now is that women and children are coming too. With women refugees come new challenges, one of which is pregnancy.
The way that we speak about women's experiences from female genital mutilation to pornography to sexual violence to street harassment has undergone a profound shift as feminist ideas have moved more firmly into the mainstream. But that doesn't mean that it's time to rest on our laurels.
