The United States is projected to become even more diverse in the coming decades and much of this change, as it has been in the past, will be driven by immigration. Despite the growing numbers of diverse immigrant populations, however, their interests and concerns are often overlooked in public policy debates. Immigrant women experience a number of challenges—reproductive health issues, domestic violence, poor job quality within traditionally female occupations, difficulty accessing supportive services—and these challenges can be particularly acute for those who lack legal status.

By conducting research on the social and economic circumstances of immigrant women, our work serves to address the barriers faced by immigrant women while also raising the visibility of their many contributions to the economic and social well-being of the United States.
