Women for Refugee Women - I Am Human report

I AM HUMAN
 
*Today Women for Refugee Women launched their I Am Human report exploring the experiences of women detained in Yarl’s Wood.*

It reveals that despite Home Office denials, women are routi
nely watched and searched by male staff in the detention centre.

Many LISG members have been detained at Yarl's Wood, and live in fear of being returned there.
 
The report is available on the Women for Refugee women website:
 
The report was launched at the National Refugee Women’s conference 'Set Her Free'. Check out the coverage of the conference in the Guardian.
