International Women's Day

On this International Women’s Day, CARE International calls on all governments in the world to end violence against women. Here in the West Bank and Gaza, we celebrate the resilience of Palestinian women in the face of adversity and call upon all stakeholders to end all forms of violence against them – including the violence stemming from prolonged occupation of the Palestinian territory. The challenges and hopes of the Palestinian women are captured in the short photo-film below, paying respect to their determination to rebuild damaged lives after repeated outbreaks of violence in Gaza.
