Gaza- Press House
In sponsorship of Press House - Palestine (BAS), the Association of Female University Graduates in the Gaza strip implemented an initiative during April 2021 on the topic of “Your Voice is Your Safety” as part of “Strengthening Free & Independent Media in Palestine” project activities funded by the Norwegian and the Swiss Governments.
The initiative aims to strengthen the role of women in the political participation and raise their awareness level on their rights of election and voting by raising Palestinian community awareness level on the importance of women’s political participation.
Also, the initiative included two awareness workshops targeting female graduates on the topic of “the importance of women’s political participation in election and voting.”
These sessions addressed several topics: the concept of election, electoral Laws, guidelines of elections, the international electoral standards, and the electoral items and systems.
The initiative included a radio episode on “Zaman FM” radio station on the topic of “the importance of women’s political participation in the light of the Palestinian Elections,” and the discussion was about the role assigned to women in the upcoming elections, increasing the opportunities for women to reach the Legislative Council, and their role in the democratic transition during the upcoming elections.
