Everyday Life in Occupied Palestine: a Talk by Laila Hasan
April 15 @ 7:00 pm
Women in Hebron (WiH) is a Palestinian non-profit under the Idna Cooperative Association for Embroidery and Handicrafts. Handicrafts were sold in the Israeli-occupied Old City market of Hebron. Since 2005, Women in Hebron has grown from one table to a permanent market place in Old City. Thanks to its sales of beautiful handicrafts through WiH, and the Idna Cooperative Association has opened a community center in Idna. Members of the association gather there to do their handicraft work, take part in educational programs and socialize with their peers. Over 150 women now embroider for the Cooperative. For some, this is their only family income. Many of the women in the cooperative are divorced, widowed or have husbands long-detained by Israel.
Join us as we listen to Laila Hasan when she speaks of her experiences creating and selling her crafts in an Israeli-occupied City.
Laila Hasan is Co-founder and Shopkeeper for Women in Hebron (WiH).
