Women of Palestine: A multimedia event- package available to groups

This package was produced for a project centred on International Women’s Day 2014. It sought to knit together an understanding and appreciation of the daily work and political struggle of Palestinian women with the wider movement for women’s rights internationally.

Women from Northern PSC groups have developed a free-standing “module” about the Olive Roots Association in Zaytoun, Gaza (Jameela’s Kitchen), a women’s cooperative which provides food for local families. This material is a vehicle for celebrating what the women in Gaza project are achieving and for making people aware of the obstacles they have to overcome.

Although the topic seems to be confined to the realm of the domestic, it can open avenues which are politically wide-reaching. A core aim of the project was therefore use the opportunity to raise awareness about the BDS movement with people to whom it might be an unfamiliar concept.

Material available

Film of Jameela’s Kitchen on disc
Advice on how to mount a simple demonstration of Palestinian food preparation.
Slide show with Fact Sheet and notes
Photographic exhibition (electronically for showing on projector if you are very far away or the foam-board mounted materials if you are close to the north)
Links to poems on internet or poems on pen-drive.

Copies of booklets and cards as long as stocks last (postage would need to be charged if you are at a distance. Booklets cost £5 and sets of cards also cost £5) For more information contact Recipes of Resistance

It may be possible for a couple of the core team to help with presentation at an event, depending on timing and other logistical issues.
