Diotima's campaign “Do the human right thing” and the motto #SpreadOurVoice give rise to refugees and asylum seekers' voices!
Refugee and asylum-seeking women face greater barriers in accessing employment than men.
Having less or no previous professional experience and a lower level of education, due to gender divisions experienced in the countries of origin, they seek temporary job opportunities for their daily survival.
Lack of governmental inclusion policies aimed at their skills development results in being further excluded from the labour market.
Women themselves emphasize that they want to work to gain their autonomy and reduce the risk of exposure to exploitation and violence.
