2019 Summer Lecture Series: Resistance Among Palestinian Women Citizens in Israel with Dr. Suheir Daoud

The Jerusalem Fund & Palestine Center invites you to its 2019 Summer Intern Lecture Series, “Resist, My People, Resist Them”: Centering the Voices of Palestinian Women in Resistance.

This summer lecture series focuses its attention on the genealogical transformation of Palestinian women’s resistance. The series explores the different forms of resistance that Palestinian women have taken and draws attention to the varied ways that Palestinian women have been involved with, led, and shaped resistance.


In our next installation in this series, Dr. Suheir Abu Oksa Daoud will join us at the Palestine Center to present a lecture about the resistance led by Palestinian women citizens of Israel during different phases since Israel’s establishment. She will then focus on her recent research on women in the Islamic Movement and the challenges they face from within the Palestinian society and from the implications of the recently imposed Nation State Law.


The lecture will begin at 6:30 pm and will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.


Dr. Suheir Abu Oksa Daoud is a Palestinian writer and professor from Mi’ilya village in Western Galilee (northern Israel). She holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and is currently an Associate Professor of Politics in the Department of Politics at Coastal Carolina University. Dr. Daoud has authored numerous articles and op-eds in Arabic, Hebrew and English and has published four volumes of Arabic poetry and literature. Her book “Palestinian Women and Politics in Israel” was published by University Press of Florida, 2009. Her article “Palestinian Working Women in Israel: National Oppression and Social Restraints” was published in the Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies, Yale University (2012, Spring).
