Women Talking: Refugee Women
As part of Intercultire’s hugely successful Women Talking Series, we are bringing you Refugee Women Talking, a unique opportunity to hear women from refugee backgrounds tell their stories.There will be the opportunity to ask questions In this interactive panel discussion. Our aims are : to encourage people to ask questions directly to Refugee women and not just talk about them/ make assumptions, create safe spaces to bring people together to break down perceived cultural barriers, to encourage people to find a platform so they can make their voices heard.
The panel came out of an intercultural awareness course ran by Interculture. Inspired by the stories we heard from both participants and members of our team ( who are also refugees) we decided to show that anyone can talk on a panel.
We have a diverse team some of whom are from refugee backgrounds. Aminata and Mona both spoke for the first time in public at our Muslim Women Talking event and are playing key role in Refugee Women Talking.
