We all suffer from the same social restrictions,” she says. The activist has been a strong advocate of social justice and women’s rights in Palestine.

Union of Palestinian Women Committees (UPWC) – UPWC struggles to empower Palestinian women and develop their circumstances to achieve real equity between men and women as well as equity among all social classes.
