Palestine Solidarity Campaign are proud to welcome Nawal Slemiah, founder and director of Women in Hebron. Women in Hebron are a womens-based cooperative in Idna, a neighbouring village in Hebron, Palestine who have become an important source of income, education and empowerment to local women in the area.
Known for their authentic Palestinian embroidery goods, Women in Hebron have become a means of honoring the role of women in Palestinian society, expressing steadfastness in the face of the military occupation in Palestine, and a means of strengthening the community.
Join us for an evening with Nawal discussing the Israeli occupation in Hebron, Palestine, the importance of cultural resistance and the role women play in Palestinian activism.
