Feminism and colonialism in Palestine


In collaboration with the Institute of Women’s Studies at Birzeit University in Ramallah, the Arab Council for Social Sciences- Palestine, yesterday organized a zoom meeting on “Feminist Studies under Colonialism”. The event aimed to discuss feminism and colonialism as a field of knowledge in view of Palestine’s unique condition: as a nation that lives under two states of colonialism: the Israeli Occupation and the Palestinian National Authority, (interim self-government body) which, in turn, is subject to political and economic dependence. The meeting also debated the situation of women and the discourse on gender and gender-based discrimination practiced against them by the Palestinian patriarchal society and the ruling regime under colonialism.
