Women in the Diaspora
13 December 2017

Womanity cooperated with Radio Nisaa when producing and presenting the program “Women in the Diaspora” in 2014-2015. The program was a weekly segment of the Morning Show, Qahwa Mazboot

The show’s presenter interviewed and gave voice to Palestinian women in the Diaspora with the two-fold objective of reconnecting them with their sisters in Palestine, but also enabling them to empower Palestinian women by telling their own stories, their achievements and struggles. The aim was to increase the visibility of Palestinian women in the Diaspora in contemporary Palestinian everyday life, and showcasing the innovative spirit of Palestinians abroad - especially the women - along with their commitment to promoting a Palestinian identity

Among others, “Women in Diaspora” hosted the following:

- in January, the author Ms Najwa Al Ghanem based in UAE, who writes on Palestinians’ and women’s issues;

- in February, Ms Nadia Dajani who owns a jewelry company in Amman and whose artwork is produced by Bedouin and marginalised women;

- in April, Ms Hala Al Fayez, the Palestinian Ambassador in Sweden who discussed her commitment to promote and represent the Palestinian heritage and culture in Sweden;

- in July, Ms Faten Tamimi, an artist living in Jordan who participated in the Irish - Palestinian Festival attended by 300 artists and who discussed the importance of art in conveying the true spirit of a country.
