2009: Gaza is a difficult place for women. The siege not only affects the economy, but the most basic of dreams and space to simply be.
“Women of Gaza” depicts a different side of Gaza. Despite the devastation, a community spirit and elegance prevails.
Life continues, and so do the traditions and self-respect–a resistance to letting suffering be the standard definition.
Women are continuing to care for their families, strive for education, and pursue careers against the odds.
