The WRAP #92: A brighter future for migrant women, unity in reproductive justice and 60 Seconds with Jenny Cao

Dear WRAP-pers,

We know we say this every time, but what a month it truly has been!

For many of us, we’re finally experiencing our first steps outside 5kms and are enjoying gatherings with our (socially distanced) loved ones. These celebrations are a reminder that we can’t take these freedoms for granted. This week, a sacred and culturally significant tree to the Djab Wurrung people was cut to make way for a highway, while many refugees continue to be detained indefinitely.

And, for many migrant women, gender and race discrimination persists in all aspects of life, including workplaces and the law. In our first article, we write about the overrepresentation of migrant women workers in essential frontline jobs, while our second article calls for unity in women’s reproductive justice and autonomy.

Finally, we end this month’s issue with a lovely interview with one of our newest staff members, Jenny Cao, who talks about the art of journaling, story-telling and love.

Until next time,
The WRAP team
