A dupla luta das feministas palestinianas

For Palestinian Feminists, Liberation Has 2 Meanings, por Jen Marlowe e Fadi Abu Shammalah (The Nation):

Abdelalim and Hamad are hopeful that the current protests indicate a new phase for women’s activism in Gaza and may provide a path to greater gender equality. “What happened in this Great Return March is that women reclaimed their large role in the Palestinian struggle,” Abdelalim says. As Hamad observes, the number of women involved increased each Friday. In fact, according to Abdelalim’s estimate, women made up about 40 percent of the protesters, a remarkable figure given the history of these last years.
