Migration
Some of us travel voluntarily. As technology brings the world closer, more and more young women travel for leisure to countries far away from their own—or use the Internet to do so virtually.

Some of us are forced to travel. In this era of globalization, some leave their homes fleeing from war and violence—and some leave their homes searching for greener economic pastures.

What does it mean to be a refugee? Hear Hadeel Al Treiki, a young Palestinian, share her heartbreaking thoughts on the subject. Is nationality irrelevant? Hear Elda Stanco, born in Venezuela and with strong ties to her father’s Italian heritage describe what she sees as a new ‘transglobal’ generation of women.

Where have you traveled? Where did your family before you travel? Share your thoughts.
