Reframing the migration narrative from the perspective of vulnerable migrant women in India

India’s rapid urbanization along with crisis in rural areas has led to unprecedented migration to large metropolitan cities. Migrants in search of opportunities in informal sectors are often marginalized and denied access to housing, healthcare, subsidized food etc. Women in these communities are also vulnerable because of the existing patriarchal structures that restrict their mobility and make them victims of other forms of violence. The experiences and voices of these women do not feature in the popular urban migration narrative.

This project, implemented by WACC partner Ideosync Media Combine, seeks to empower migrant women by enhancing their skills and confidence so that they can be agents of their own narrative. To achieve this, a community based research must first be undertaken to identify stories. The next step will involve developing various strategies including creating a training manual with audio/visual stories with a focus on rights so that 20 women from three urban locations on the outskirts of Delhi (JJ slum cluster colony on the Faridabad Bypass road, Khan, Badarpur Border and Palla Urban village) can record their experiences which can then be disseminated through mainstream media outlets. There is also an initiative to broadcast at least 25 stories on online platforms. This project seeks to empower migrant women to advance their communication rights so that they can advance other rights.
