The Female Refugee Experience in Central Ohio


The purpose of this project is to uplift the voices of female refugees. Female refugees deserve a place in academia, the media, and our minds. Currently, they do not frequently occupy these spaces or receive the respect and attention that other groups do. When female refugees can occupy these spaces, they can be heard. They can have representation and the ability to utilize its power to better their living situations. 

This project will focus on the common themes, concerns, and experiences of female refugees. I will draw from literature, articles, documentaries, and the interviews I conduct. Gender roles will be given significant consideration in the analysis of this information. 

When you have finished reviewing this project, I hope you can have a better understanding of the lives of female refugees, the challenges they face, and how we can best support them.
