Women in mobility are confronted with multiple structural gender-based violence, aggravated by their invisibility, in which they also develop resistances that intersect with feminist mobilizations in the lands where they seek asylum. This article presents the results of a survey on this intersection, in the Alpes Maritimes-Liguria. The first axis deals with the situations of non-rights of the women asylum seekers and the forms of their resistance. The second axis focuses on their interactions with the feminist movements in this region. If they succeeded relatively well in be-ing actors of their adventure, their living conditions hinder their participation in col-lective struggles. In any case, the continuity of cross-border feminist cooperation, precarious but constant, is structuring a Franco-Italian network that allows reflex-ive exchanges and the mobilization of collective resources to organize transna-tional actions.

Keywords: female migration; feminist struggles; collective action; precarity; soli-darity; social hierarchies.
