Arab region: the dignity of womenDeveloping networks to reduce violence against women
The Dignity of Women publishes the voices and views of women working to end violence against women in the Arab region and to promote women's rights. In collaboration with a network of women’s organisations across north Africa and the middle east, the 5050 section of openDemocracy is bringing the knowledge and experiences of women into the global debate.

NSK: In the book I look at the day to day life of Palestinian women and try to uncover the effects of militarization and occupation, and the global denial of the ordeals of the Palestinian women in both the private and the pubic sphere. I try to show that you can never divorce the private sphere from the public sphere and discuss the way that the bodies of Palestinian women are a battlefield for the occupation.
