Women and Migration – A “National Geographic Live” Virtual Event
Auditorium Theatre
50 E. Congress Parkway
Chicago, IL 60605
Apr 13, 2021

Photographers Danielle VillasanaMiora Rajaonary, and Saiyna Bashir join photo editor Jennifer Samuel in conversation on The Everyday Projects documenting how social, economic, political, and climate issues are pushing and pulling women from their homes. Drawn by the promise of a better future, women increasingly have traveled to wealthier countries, taking jobs in child- and eldercare and domestic work, as well as manufacturing and agriculture—a shift described as “the feminization of migration.” For women who are forced to leave home because of famine or violence, migration is a gamble for their very survival.
