Refugee Women in Britain and France

Gill Allwood and Khursheed Wadia

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Challenges our understanding of refugees as men and argues that the process of recognising refugees and meeting their needs should be gendered
  • Positions refugee women as actors rather than victims and looks for evidence of their participation in the social, economic and political life of the countries in which they now live
  • Tells us who these women are and how they experience their lives as refugees in Britain and France
