ASYLUM SEEKERS/DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: GENDER, LAW, AND ACTIVISM ON THE FRONTLINES

6:00 p.m.
Roosevelt House 

Domestic violence embodies how the personal is political.  In June of this year, Attorney General Jeff Sessions reversed an immigration appeals court ruling that granted asylum to a Salvadoran woman who said she had been sexually, emotionally and physically abused by her husband. The intersection of the fraught and complex process of seeking asylum intertwined with domestic violence is both lightening rod and reality.  In this panel, four women who are on the front lines of supporting asylum seekers at the intersection of local and global will share their experiences doing advocacy, legal and activist work in court, at the US border and in European refugee camp settings.

PhenomenalWomen@RH, a series that brings the voices, insights, and experiences of girls and women whose local, national, and global activism, creativity, scholarship, and perspectives engage, provoke, and inspire innovative paths to social justice and  public policy PhenomenalWomen@RH is based at Roosevelt House and co-sponsored by the  Women and Gender Studies Department at Hunter College.
