WOMEN’S RESISTANCE IN PALESTINE

The Occupied Palestinian Territories form a jigsaw puzzle of poorly connected parts of the West Bank and Gaza. The Palestinian National Authority’s control  of their territory is fragmentary, weak and always under the power of the State of Israel.

Living in Palestine is resisting daily live in a highly militarized environment, with severe limitations on human mobility, economic and political development. In this context, Palestinian women are seeking alternatives to survival and social transformation.

This photo series depicts various initiatives of women who self-organize, either to generate income – by offering alternative Palestinian products to Israeli products-, or leadership capacity building in order to be elected to the Local Councils of their communities.
