Immigrant women come to the United States for reasons as varied and dynamic as the women themselves. Some dream of better lives for themselves and their children. Some are seeking to reunify with spouses, parents, and children from whom they’ve been separated. Some are fleeing gender-based violence. Through its Gender Justice Initiative, NIJC advocates to ensure U.S. law recognizes the critical contributions and particular vulnerabilities of immigrant women.
