camp visits

We visit the isolated lagers in Berlin-Brandenburg and meet with refugee women to exchange experiences. This way we find out about the living conditions in each specific Lager and together we look for collective strategies on how to improve them.

We organize seminars and empowerment workshops for refugee women to improve their difficult living situation and develop perspectives to fight for their rights in the asylum procedure and to defend themselves against sexualized violence, discrimination, and exclusion.

We are part of different anti-racist and feminist networks and together we plan and organize actions. We demonstrate, give interviews to the media and take part in public events like podium discussions, panels, radio, etc. to let society know about the problems faced by refugee women and their demands.

Refugee Women for Refugee Women

Women in Exile is an initiative of refugee women founded in Brandenburg in 2002 to fight for their rights.

Double Discrimination

We have made the experience that refugee women are doubly discriminated against not only by racist laws in general but also as women.

Platform for Women

Our organisation is a platform for refugee women. We bring the inhumane living conditions of refugee women to the public and develop strategies for political change.

Feminist Organisation

We see ourselves as one of the few bridges between the refugee movement and the women’s movement. It was in this spirit of solidarity that Women in Exile and Friends was created in 2011 and activists without a refugee background joined us.

Our demands

Our fundamental political goal is 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.
