“We are announcing that next Friday, April 20 will be called ‘The Women’s March for Gaza,’ where women will lead the March to the Eastern Border with Israel. It will be an international day for Gazan human rights that will show Palestinian women taking the lead in the struggle.”

Gazan women have been quite visible in the current popular mobilization at the Gaza border, which began on March 30, coinciding with Land Day. 

However, women groups have been pushing for a leadership position at the rallies, thus the designation of April 20 as the ‘Women’s March for Gaza.’

On April 10, the Women’s Committee organized a campaign,  in which Gaza women released balloons bearing the names of villages from which nearly a million Palestinian were displaced in 1947-48.
