This study explores the experiences of migrant African women in Ireland accessing and participating in the labour market. This small scale study conducted on behalf of AkiDwA – the African Womenʼs Network – shows that while migrant African women tend to be highly educated, they are often over-qualified for the jobs they can access. The study shows that many migrant women experience barriers to accessing the labour market and face discrimination at work, despite being aware of Irelandʼs equality legislation.
