Working with migrant women, we have seen first-hand how increasingly fearful and discriminatory attitudes in Europe have become towards migrants.
While people have kept migrating in search of better economic or social conditions, the levels of xenophobia and racism have consistently risen in recent years.
In many European countries political parties that normalize xenophobia and racism in their discourse have been gaining power. Migration has been made a problematic and dividing issue, a narrative VOW Media wishes to challenge.
Young migrant women are increasingly faced with social alienation and marginalization.
We held a 9-day workshop, in Amsterdam, for 20 young migrant women from Spain, Romania, Greece and the Netherlands. During this workshop we provided the participants with multimedia skills and a safe space for them to tell their stories.
