Description: 

Immigrant women make enormous contributions to U.S. society and face a number of intense challenges that are under-recognized in discussions and debate on immigration reform. Honoring the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day, this forum will bring together leading activists, policy makers, and researchers from across the country to discuss strategies for addressing women immigrants' unique concerns, including a lack of access to child care, health care and education, and disproportionate exposure to harassment and violence.
