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.

 

How do the women of the Gaza Strip bring up their families and attempt to live normal lives? This work goes beyond the stereotypical depictions, exploring their lives as they work, rest, and seek moments of freedom wherever they can find it.
