European Network of Migrant Women

who we are

We are visionary, proactive
and bold.

We prioritise migrant women
and girls.

European Network of Migrant Women is a migrant-women-led feminist, secular, non-partisan platform that advocates for the rights, freedoms and dignity of migrant, refugee and ethnic minority women and girls in Europe. 

Our diverse membership includes the women from almost all the regions of the globe and extends to over 50 grassroots and advocacy groups in over 20 European countries.

Established in 2012, European Network of Migrant Women works through collaborative actions with our members - organisations, groups and individual migrant feminists - promoting capacity-building, access to rights and justice and self-representation among migrant and refugee women at the European and international level. Collectively, we foster a safe-space where girls and women of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds can come together to support each other, forge alliances and build solidarity across differences and borders.

Mums at Work is a European project promoting migrant mothers' access to employment and strengthening their labour integration and rights. In Europe, mothers who are migrant and refugees, suffer serious barriers in the job market compared to both migrant men and women of European origin, due to the lack of social networks, child-care, deskilling and external and internal discrimination. As a result, many of these women live in - and at constant risk of - poverty and social isolation. Through Mums@Work project a group of nearly 100 migrant mothers receive support to enter paid employment in Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Cyprus and Netherlands. The action also creates an European awareness raising campaign on the rights of migrant mothers.
