This new report about “Women’s Rights Advocacy by Community Storytelling” is a result of a series of workshops during the last two years about women’s rights in Palestinian society. The focus has been on the fields of education, labor, health and violence against women in the home and the family. The workshops took place in four localities in the larger Bethlehem area of the West Bank: the villages Artas, Al Walajeh and Al Khader, and the refugee camp Dheisheh. The project aimed to strengthen the role of Palestinian women in raising awareness about women’s rights and increasing their capacity to conduct advocacy for the rights of women. The backbone of this report are over 50 stories told by women about women’s rights violations. The rich details of the stories make this study particularly worthwhile.
