The Everyday Sexism Project exists to catalogue instances of sexism experienced by women on a day to day basis. For women refugees, uprooted in another country, or displaced within their own country, these experiences of sexism are often extreme and can be life threatening. According to the UN, there are approximately 40 million women and children who are refugees, between 78-80% of the total number of refugees.
Refugee women rarely have a voice but now you can share your story and show the world what sexism is like for a refugee woman. Say as much or as little as you like, use your real name or a pseudonym – it’s up to you. By sharing your story you’re showing the world how sexism threatens the lives of the world’s most vulnerable women everydayand why it is a valid problem to discuss.
