Migrants Rights Network (MRN), The Forum and UNHCR are excited to open the call for nominations for the Women on the Move Awards 2014. The awards – formerly the Migrant and Refugee Woman of the Year awards – will be announced on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2014. The Women on the Move Awards celebrates and supports the contribution that migrant and refugee women, the media and their champions can make towards facing down prejudice and inspiring others. This year there are four categories of awards. The Woman of the Year and Young Woman of the Year awards celebrate women who, having migrated or fled persecution, provide essential support and inspiring leadership at the grassroots to others starting a new life in the UK. The Media Award recognises the outstanding work of a journalist or producer whose reporting has promoted the protection needs of refugee, asylum-seeking or migrant women, either in the UK or abroad. This year, the awards will also recognise a Champion of the Year: an individual, group of people, or organisation, selected by a panel, which has made a significant contribution to supporting migrant and refugee women.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
