Pockets of interest in the situation of asylum seekers and refugee women in France emerged in the early 2000s. This chapter presents as full a picture as possible of asylum seeking and refugee women's experiences of and interactions within reception and integration structures and processes in France. As far as asylum procedures are concerned, asylum seekers either lodge an intention to claim refugee status on arrival at a French port or make an in-country application to Office Français de Protection des Réfugiés et Apatrides (OFPRA). This chapter also discusses French policy on detention, accommodation, access to healthcare, women refugee migrants and mental health, maternity services, education, training and employment, and family and community relations. It also compares asylum seeking and refugee women in Britain and France.
