Social activist claims that gender-based violence caused by the occupation

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, on 16-day campaign to fight gender-based violence, hosting Campaign Liaison and Support Director for the Palestinian Working Woman Society for Development Sandy Hanna

The Palestinian campaign is part of the international “16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence” Campaign which takes place across the globe calling to end violence against women and girls. The campaign began on Nov. 25 on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and ended on Dec. 10, Human Rights Day.

Visual: During a conversation with Campaign Liaison and Support Director for the Palestinian Working Woman Society for Development Sandy Hanna, PA TV showed images from the campaign with the following messages condemning violence against women:

"No to violence against women" is written on an image showing a woman with a red tear falling from her eye.


"There is no authority that gives men the right to attack women” is written on an image showing a woman holding her hand up before her face, palm forward, in a gesture to stop someone. On her palm is written: “It is not your right”


In another image men and women are shown on either side of a balanced scale to symbolize their equality.


Campaign Liaison and Support Director for the Palestinian Working Woman Society for Development Sandy Hanna: "This campaign will not be occasional as the violence against women – especially in Palestine – is complicated and has been repeating for many years and we have a long way to go in the fight against violence, whether it is gender-based and essentially reestablishing itself due to society's patriarchal foundation, or the most dangerous reason, which is the occupation and the implications inherent to it. Therefore, I do not want us to be frustrated, but there is a long way to go in the fight against violence."
