This package was produced for a project centred on International Women’s Day 2014. It sought to knit together an understanding and appreciation of the daily work and political struggle of Palestinian women with the wider movement for women’s rights internationally.
Women from Northern PSC groups have developed a free-standing “module” about the Olive Roots Association in Zaytoun, Gaza (Jameela’s Kitchen), a women’s cooperative which provides food for local families. This material is a vehicle for celebrating what the women in Gaza project are achieving and for making people aware of the obstacles they have to overcome.
Although the topic seems to be confined to the realm of the domestic, it can open avenues which are politically wide-reaching. A core aim of the project was therefore use the opportunity to raise awareness about the BDS movement with people to whom it might be an unfamiliar concept.
