    Philosophers' Café | Migrant Women in Canada: Negotiating Double Identities
    With women making up nearly half of the world's migrants, we’ll explore the experiences of diasporic women in Canada. Whether they leave their homelands in pursuit of education, career opportunities or improved living conditions, migration can be transformative in both positive and negative ways. <p>We’ll discuss and contrast the assumptions about migration found in media accounts with the actual conditions diasporic women deal with daily, probing how their experiences are shaped by age, gender, class, race and their varied emotional experiences of belonging, exclusion, anxiety and ambiguity. How do diasporic women deal with their double identities? What can or should the rest of us do to ease their transitions?</p>
