Women in Palestine are subject to both military and domestic violence. The Israeli occupation affects women’s access to education, health, work and normal family life, which deeply affects their domestic experiences. Dr. Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian and Saida Atrash explain in a short interview. (instead we can note in the title (in brackets) that this is a video)
“The Israeli occupation affects the daily lives of Palestinians, especially for women.
The deterioration of the economic, social and health conditions in Palestine is directly linked with violence inside the home. The militarization of space and restrictions imposed upon women is causing a growing crisis in violence against women.
Dr. Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian, university Professor and author of recent book Militarization and Violence Against Women in Conflict Zones in the Middle East, speaks about the ordeals of Palestinian women under occupation.
AIC also speaks with Saida Atrash Director of Mehwar Center, the only shelter for women in the West Bank of Palestine.”
