Women migrants are often more vulnerable than their male counterparts – they face what is called the double disadvantage (of being both women and migrants). However migration, despite its economic and emotional costs, opens up new opportunities even for women who undertake low skill jobs, are undocumented, face discrimination or are exploited. This panel showcases how migrant women have oftentimes managed to turn the odds in their favour and highlight the factors that contribute to their empowerment and leadership.
