Webinar: Women of Gaza, listening to their perspectives on 14 years of blockade
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.
