Intersections: Violence against women and immigration policy (Part II)


This two-part webinar will offer a framework that challenges the notion that violence against women is rooted in culture and explore the intersections of immigration policy and violence against women.

The presenters will look at the political and practical implications of newcomer women's migration status and their experience of gender-based violence, and offer tools and resources for front-line workers supporting newcomer women in situations of violence. 

*Ces sessions auront lieu en anglais, mais les participants peuvent poser leurs questions en français. Des versions françaises de ces webinaires sont prévues en février 2016. Pour plus de renseignements :*
