  • NEW REPORT REVEALS NEED FOR NAMING ‘GENDER’ AS SIXTH GROUND FOR ASYLUM

    Pubs

    September 9th, 2021

    A new report by the Tahirih Justice Center highlights the urgent need for ‘gender’ to be recognized as the sixth protected ground for asylum. In this report, Tahirih asserts that current U.S. asylum laws, as applied, fail to adequately and consistently protect survivors fleeing gender-based violence, leaving them vulnerable to further abuse and trauma. The inclusion of gender as a sixth ground is one of several critical steps needed to transform our immigration system into one that fully understands and meets the needs of survivors.
