International Women’s Day 2018

International Women’s Day Events 3-10 March 2018

We were proud to be a part of an inspirational series of events, organised by Northern Women for Palestine, for International Women’s Day which took place between 3-10 March.

The first event was held in Leeds on 3rd March at the  Oxford Place Community Centre in Leeds (adjacent to Leeds Town Hall). We celebrated the resilience of Palestinian women over 70 years through poetry, personal stories, film, photos and a stunning, specially designed, art installation. Entry was free and it was open to all and fully accessible.

Thanks to everyone who came along – it was a fascinating event, made all the more special by having Kholoud Al Ajarma showing her film ‘On The Way Home’ that was specially commissioned for this series of events.  Kholoud inspired us all with her discussion about the generations of women in her family who have resisted and continue to resist occupation.
