Palestinian Women for Peace

In early March, the Palestinian Peace Coalition (PPC)-Geneva Initiative organized a seminar for women activists in Gaza city, which focused on the current political situation and the role of women in the political sphere.
This seminar, coinciding with the international women’s day and made possible thanks to the EU Partnership for Peace, shed light on how Palestinian women are either excluded from the political life or unable to mobilize and achieve significant political influence. Some 60 participants attended the event, which featured Dr. Abir Thabet, a Political Scientist from Alazhar University, Mrs. Donya Ismael, a political and women’s rights activist and Mrs. Majeda Albalbisi, a journalists and a political activist.
