Jennifer and Denise discuss with Lucía Muriel and Jasmin Eding about mental health, mental illness, isolation, and torture - and how we can create a support network for migrant and refugee women living in Lagers. They unpack how issues of mental health for migrant women are linked to the traumatic experiences that lead women to flee, the traumatic experiences they had on their journeys to Europe, the precarious living conditions and isolation in the refugee shelters, which are never addressed, and above all - the fear of deportation. All of which is the direct result of the ongoing structural violence of patriarchy, white supremacy, colonialism, capitalism, and sexism. With music from Mercedes Sosa, Nina Simone.
