Migrant women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds face discrimination on the basis of both their race and sex, which can be direct or indirect.
Recent research by migrant women’s organisations, such as the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) found that discrimination was a dominant theme in the experience of culturally and linguistically diverse women in leadership roles and roles that lead to leadership positions. This discrimination was experienced with both gender and ethnicity affecting culturally and linguistically diverse women’s participation. Moreover, discrimination was as common for those who worked in multicultural settings as it was for those in mainstream sectors.
It is very important to focus on Migrant Women and it is our duty encourage and empower them to speak out.
