Nisreen Mazzawi and Dalia Sachs

Within a few hours after the brutal attack on Gaza began, the Coalition of Women for Peace mobilized more than 1,500 women and men in a protest against the bombardment.  Throughout the 22 days of the massacre in the Gaza Strip, the group helped to bring the voice of resistance within Israel to the Israeli public and to the international community.  
 
Come hear two women who participated in the protests offer reflections on the relationship between the war, gender, protest and security.

She co-founded and is on the board of ASWAT (Palestinian Lesbian organization). She has an M.A. in Natural Resources and Environmental Management and a B.Sc. in Biology.

Complete Description:

GAZA AND BEYOND: A FEMINIST PERSPECTIVE
A discussion with 2 Israeli women, one Jewish and one Palestinian

Dalia Sachs is on the faculty of the Department of Occupational Therapy at Haifa University in Israel. She was one of the founders of the Haifa Women in Black in 1988 and of the Coalition of Women for Peace in 2000. She has been an active member of both organization and of the feminist peace movement in Israel for over 20 years.

Nisreen Mazzawi is a feminist and social activist who promotes civil society projects in the areas of women’s rights, gender equality, democracy education, and social and environmental justice. She is a co-founder and board member of ASWAT (Palestinian Lesbian organization). She has an M.A. in Natural Resources and Environmental Management and a B.Sc. in Biology.

The existence of Israeli protests against the Gaza massacre was buried by the media, let alone the role of women in leading those protests. While the mainstream press say that the whole Israeli Left supported the carnage, these two women not only participated in the protests, but also offer reflections on the relationship between the war, gender and security.

Within a few hours after the brutal attack on Gaza began, the Coalition of Women for Peace mobilized more than 1,500 women and men in a protest against the bombardment by the Israeli Air Forces. Throughout the 22 days of the massacre in the Gaza Strip, the group helped to bring the voice of resistance within Israel to the Israeli public and to the international community.

Co-sponsored by the Anatolian Club of NYU, CODEPINK Women for Peace, and Women in Black Union Square
