[VIDEO] Voices From the Field: Arizona Anti-Immigration Bills are an Attack on Women

As we recently noted, the Arizona state legislature is considering ever-more frightening anti-immigrant legislation that would have devastating consequences for women and families.

Catherine Tactaquin, Executive Director of the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, a Ms. Foundation grantee, explains how women and children -- who together make up a majority of the US immigrant population -- would bear the brunt of these drastic new measures. This tacitly racist legislation, she says, would leave them isolated, vulnerable and dangerously barred from public resources and public life.

Listen to and view other grassroots women experts' perspectives on key social justice issues. Help us keep these attacks on immigrant women's rights at bay -- in Arizona and nationwide -- by supporting the Ms. Foundation today.
