Do Unto Others focuses on the Middle East, (nonviolent) social movements, and how I make sense of my place in the world. I'm currently based in Cairo, Egypt doing peacebuilding and community development.

Women resist occupation and preserve cultural heritage

I have been working in Hebron for the last 2 weeks (waiting for our staffing conditions to improve so I can head down to the south Hebron hills) and have spent a lot of time drinking tea with these women in their Old City shop. This is women's resistance: women working to feed their families, supporting Palestinian cultural heritage, and also resisting the colonialist Judaization of their city.
