Sexualized Violence, Flight and Migration

Sunday, September 12th, 12.00-14.00, ASZ (no cis men)

Panel – Various individuals

Violence against women is multifaceted, also in the context of flight and migration: patriarchal violence in and through the Swiss asylum procedure; sexualized violence and danger to life as “insufficient” reasons for asylum; forms of violence and harassment of women in asylum camps and prisons. What are women’s experiences before, during and after flight and migration? At this panel, survivors talk about their immediate and violent experiences in the context of flight and migration and possible resistance against it.
