Show Summary Details


This chapter concludes the book with a discussion of the likely consequences on the future of Palestinian political activism, and in particular their effect on women's political activism. Some questions remain. To what extent is women's political representation indicative of women's power in society? What other methods should Palestinian women use to force change in their status in the political arena? How will the Islamic discourse affect the development of women's activism? And how will developments between Palestinians in Israel and the Israeli–Arab conflict affect this involvement? The discussion notes that a reminder should be made that a resurgence of Palestinian women's activism followed a major historical trauma, and the Palestinian women's movement will always be connected to larger political and national events.
