International Women's Day 2016 - Women Refugees in the EU

All refugees face great hardship but among the most vulnerable of those travelling to the EU in search of protection from war, human rights abuses and deprivation are women and girls. 

Because of their gender, they are often the victim of violence and discrimination. The European Parliament is dedicating this year's International Women's Day on 8 March to them in order to raise awareness of their situation.
