Now that the socio-political landscape of asylum in Britain has been set in the context of international responsibilities and obligations, it is important to move to the broader picture of gendered aspects of migration and indeed reasons for migration. This chapter addresses the ways in which specific acts of violence impact on women and men differently, and identify ways in which states have come to recognise these shifts, including the development of various Security Resolutions. It focuses on three points: the trajectories of violence that women seeking asylum can face prior to and during migration; the gendered implications and consequences of such subjections; and the importance of recognising intersectional experiences within these continuums. The chapter discusses and unpick the idea that HIV can have deserving and undeserving people live with the virus, but certainly this experience encouraged author's recognition that intersectional oppression not only exists for women, but among women.
