Ihna hon | Women Activism against Gender Violence PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 13 December 2012

Palestinian women from East Jerusalem and the West Bank joined the 2012 Global Campaign 16 days of Activism against Gender Violence.

The theme of this year's Global campaign was: From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Let's Challenge Militarism and End Violence Against Women!

One of the topics during these 16 Days was sharing challenges, thoughts and opinions about what it means to be a woman in Palestine with sisters in the rest of the oPt.

These exchanges were very much appreciated and encouraged the women with the support of the Jerusalem Center for Women, the Madaa Creative Center and Diyar Consortium to launch a facebook page. Goal was and is to extend the engagement and make it a year long campaign and invite women worldwide in engaging in a discussion around challenges faced because of the fact of being a woman and to show at the same time solidarity with Palestinian women and their plight.

The facebook page is named Ihna hon نحنا هون and means we are here. Palestinian women want to make sure that they are noticed, seen and heard in their family homes, in their communities and within their society.

Ihna hon نحنا هون also indicates the women’s roots in their beloved country Palestine and their right to be here and being treated with respect and dignity.

Take your time to check out this initiative, let yourself be inspired by content shared and join in to show your support!
