From the perspective of Internal Internationalization

There are many women with foreign background living, getting married, raising children, and working in the community. Besides having a foreign background, there are people suffering from domestic violence (DV), working for low wages, and facing difficulties as a single mother because of being a woman. And there are also women came to Japan due to human trafficking. What is important to offer them support. We will have a talk from the leader of women’s NGO group who has been empowering Filipina migrants and engaged in supportive activities for about 30 years. Also, we will have an opportunity to listen to a talk by a specialist about traffic in women, which is hard to see but existing for a long time, including the cases in Thailand and other countries.
