#1 – Women’s Voices

In this episode, we hear from women forced to run from their homes by violent civil war, often losing husbands, children, other family members. They tell of their desperate flights to find safety, of years spent in refugee camps, of the journeys that brought them to Australia, and of the new lives they are forging here for themselves and their children.
