Palestinian women written in arabic typography with Palestine traditional embroidery Tatreez art design. Palestinian women, both in Gaza and the West Bank, don’t just have a significant presence as activists, protesting against an unjust occupation, but also are the backbone of a fragmented and demoralised society.
Women have been active in the Palestinian struggle since its early days. In the 1920s, they protested side by side with men against British control of their country. They formed charitable organisations and expressed themselves politically. After the state of Israel was created in 1948, the majority of Palestinians were forced to flee into exile, and here too women played a key role as protectors of their families, and repositories of the “national story”.
It was vital that Palestinians, wherever they were in the world, did not forget what had happened and continued to insist on their right of return to their homeland. Women passed their memories of Palestine down to subsequent generations.
