Resumen

Venezuelan migrant women’s experiences with discrimination during the COVID-19 pandemic in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru he literature on the social relations between receiving populations and women migrants has started to proliferate in recent years. Existing studies point to the prevalence of sexism and sexist attitudes towards migrant women in South America, and have begun to explore how these women experience, and make sense of, discrimination based on a range of identity markers. Regarding the displacement of Venezuelan women across the region, scholars have identified that this group experiences significant discrimination, based on combinations of the following identity markers: gender, socioeconomic class, nationality, and condition as (irregular) migrants. In additio to this multilayered discrimination, a common thread in related studies is that Venezuelan women’s integration experiences are deeply marked by misogynistic stereotypes, such as “prostitutes” and “husband snatchers”, as well as by criminalizing perceptions of Venezuelan displacement in general.
