About this project

Celebrating 20 Years of Women in Exile and Friends 

Please donate generously to make our International Women*s Conference a success!!!

Women in Exile is an initiative of refugee women founded in Brandenburg in 2002 by refugee women to fight for their rights. We decided to organize as a refugee women’s group because we have made the experience that refugee women are doubly discriminated against not only by racist laws and discriminative refugee laws in general but also as women. With friends (who do not have the experience of being a refugee), we fight for a just society without exclusion and discrimination, with equal rights for all, irrespective of where they come from and where they go to. In concrete policy terms, we focus on the abolition of all laws discriminatory to asylum seekers and migrants and on the interconnections of racism and sexism. We perceive ourselves as a feminist organization and one of the few links between the women’s movement and the refugees’ movement. Over the past two decades, we have broken many borders and built many bridges.

From the 4th-7th August, we want to come together to host this confererence, and to launch our collectively written book “Breaking Borders to Build Bridges,” with national and international guests.  In workshops, panel discussions and presentations we will rethink and reflect on global feminist struggles, focusing on decolonial and communitarian feminism from a global perspective and acknowledging other ways of thinking and reasoning.

Our goals with the conference are to:
  • create a space to talk about the joint struggles of all marginalized people; including Black people, Indigenous people, People of Color, people without resident status, queer people, people who have dis_abilities*, young and old people;
  • learn from each other's experiences in the fights against sexism and racism, our struggles and successes
  • learn and exchange about challenges of climate change and how it affects women in different communities;
  • speak about how the people of the global north and south can join their fights for climate justice; 
  • discuss how resources can be shared to benefit all, without one party only taking and the other being exploited;learn from each other and find solidary ways to preserve the whole planet and not just a part of it;
  • discuss strategies to dismantle the system of white patriarchal supremacy that exploits our planet and our communities. 
We are very thankful for your support!
