On International Women's Day, Mrs. Maha Abu-Dayyeh Shamas, Head of the Women’s Centre for Legal Aid and Counselling (WCLAC) talks about daily life in Palestine for women.

WCLAC was established by a small group of women in Jerusalem in 1991 as a Palestinian, independent, non-governmental, non-profit organization. Its foundation came in a context of the emergence of professional and political Palestinian women’s organizations, which had proliferated in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s as a result of the increasing involvement of women’s groups in the national struggle. The women address needs in the context of occupation and militarized oppression of the community, realizing the connections between militarized patriarchy and an increase in women’s oppression in private and public spheres.
