The majority of Palestinian women are seldom seen or heard in public. They have strong voices and strong minds, but the patriarchal culture requires them to keep their opinions and experiences within the family. A strong culture of silence hides most of the daily life and struggle of Palestinian women. As in all societies, however, there are exceptions: strong and brave women who have made remarkable careers, both in politics and society. This chapter tells the stories of three of these women. It also discusses several Palestinian organizations that work actively to support women's rights and improve their situation. They deal with everything from charity to education and empowerment of women, as well as research, advocacy, and lobbying for women's rights.

Keywords:   Palestinian women, patriarchal structure, women's rights, women activitsts
