women in haifa
Although the palestinian-israeli conflict has been documented for decades, i find myself more interested in the quieter moments in such a tumultuous region. And as a palestinian-american female, I can’t help but notice the unfortunate stereotypes projected onto palestinian and israeli women alike. more often than not, they are introduced as one-dimensional characters—weeping widows or mothers, or perhaps even soldiers—and the story ends there.
