Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

19 Scopus citations


After playing a major role in promoting the Palestinian national cause, the Palestinian women's movement seeks to influence policy-making and improve the legal status of women in the emerging state. The counter-campaign of the Islamic movement and the ambivalent position of the Palestinian Authority mirror the emerging "matrix of domination" in Palestine. A broad political coalition of all democratic forces in Palestinian society is needed if any real change in women's status is to take place.
