“We have to listen to women and listen to their experiences that women have to offer. We have to listen to their stories.”

The U.S Embassy to the Holy See organized a forum on women and migration. The ambassador said the topic even has a presence in religious traditions. As an example, he cited Mary.

“Mary is a Jewish woman who is the mother of Jesus and also highly regarded in the Koran. She began her journey on the move.”

But whether women choose to migrate or are forced to, be it for political or personal reasons, the journey ahead, usually presents unforeseen challenges. Everything from different traditions to languages and cultures. When it comes to religion, the speakers said tolerance is key.

“Muslims and Jews must come to the defense and respect of Christians and Christians must come to the defense of Muslims and Jews.”

As far as accepting migrants into the workforce, speakers say, doing so has become a necessity of large scale economics.

MARTINA LIEBSCH
Caritas Internationalis, Director of Policy
“In the EU without labor migration, a shortage of labor force of 63 million is predicted for 2015.”
