The 2019 Summer Intern Lecture Series Presents:


“Resist, My People, Resist Them” Centering the Voices of Palestinian Women in Resistance

Monday, July 15 @ 6:30pm- “Naila and the Uprising” Film Screening with producers from Just Vision


The first installation in our series presents the inspirational story of Naila Ayesh and the fierce community of Palestinian women who placed themselves at the frontlines of the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history – the First Intifada in the late 1980s. Using evocative animation, intimate interviews, and exclusive archival footage, this film brings out of anonymity the courageous women activists who shaped and led one of the most influential nonviolent women’s movements in Palestinian history. The film is produced by Just Vision and will begin screening at 6:30 pm, followed by a post-film discussion with the producers and a Q&A with the audience. Click here for more information and to RSVP »

Tuesday, July 30 @ 6:30pm- Resistance Among Palestinian Women Citizens in Israel with Dr. Suheir Daoud


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. Click here for more information and to RSVP »
