Title: Aswat Palestinian Gay Women

URL: http://aswatgroup.org/

Collection: Human Rights Documentation Initiative

Description: In Arabic and English. The mission of the ASWAT initiative is to serve as a Palestinian gay women’s group where we may express ourselves, discuss gender and sexuality, define our feminism, and address the conflict experienced by us between our national and gendered identities. In addition, we strive to generate social change in order to meet the needs of one of the most silenced and oppressed communities in Israel. We work to reach out to Palestinian and Jewish communities in Israel, and also to collaborate with other like minded institutes, groups and individuals in order to combat the multilayered discrimination we face and to promote women rights. ASWAT's projects center on three themes: empowerment and awareness, advocacy and outreach, and information. Materials on the site include information about organization activities and projects, and a multimedia gallery.
