MetadataShow full item record
This participatory research project, conducted in partnership with a multicultural women’s health centre, used photovoice to explore refugee women’s perspectives of settlement in Western Australia. Centring women’s perspectives, photos and written narratives, the research highlighted the role of systems of oppression that shape women’s experiences and reinforce a gendered, racial hierarchy. Implications include the need for intersectional and resilience based approaches to settlement policy making and programs, in order to support refugee women’s successful settlement.
