ZOOM: Women and Migration   

**This class will be taught on Zoom**

Even though popular opinion still perceives the immigrant as male, the reality is that over the
world, women and girls account for half of the almost 300 million international migrants. Eighty
percent of those seeking asylum in the world are women and their children. Is the experience of
migration different for women and men? What does the United Nations say about the unique
causes of women's migration and the impact of migration on women’s lives. These are
intriguing questions of great relevance at the present time when immigration policies are such a
“hot” topic in national and international conversations.
