Event Details

  • Date:
  • Organiser: CIDSE

CIDSE invites prominent women’s rights defenders to discuss the situation in Gaza from a gender perspective. They will share their inspiring stories of working and living under 14 years of illegal blockade and the struggle for women’s rights in Gaza.

Gaza is a difficult place for women, many of them have been bearing the brunt of the violence and the deteriorating socio-economic situation arising from the ongoing Israeli blockade. Like women elsewhere, they are also facing restrictions imposed by a patriarchal society. Yet despite the devastation, women in Gaza continue to strive to make the difference under siege and pursue their hopes, dreams and aspirations.

Speakers:

  • Wafa’ Abdel Rahman, director, Filastiniyat
  • Maha Al Raei, Director of Wessal Network, Association of Culture and Free Thought
