Summary:
Gender-based asylum is a strategy to allow asylum seekers who have experienced gender persecution to find safe haven in the United States. However, it matters not just that but how we respond to gender violence and persecution. This book explores the politics of gender-based asylum through a comparative examination of asylum policy and cases regarding domestic violence, female circumcision, rape, trafficking, coercive sterilization/abortion, and persecution based on sexual and gender identity.
