IWS RADIO

IWS RADIO is a podcast series on the migrant woman experience brought to you by IWS, the International Women* Space. We are a feminist, anti-racist group of migrant women, refugee women and women without this experience. We are based in Berlin, Germany.

We want to inspire other women to self-organize, formulate their needs and demands and to initiate collective actions. With IWS RADIO we want to both shed light on our lived experiences and the general situation for migrant women in Germany.... Show More
