Inequalities facing Women living in Area C of the occupied Palestinian territories' West Bank

07.10.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

The West Bank is divided in three areas according to the Oslo accords: Area A under the Palestinian National Authority's full control; Area B under Palestinian civil control and shared Israeli-Palestinian security control; and Area C, which is entirely controlled by Israel. This study seeks to analyse the inequalities that exist in the lives of Palestinian women living in Area C of the West Bank. It deconstructs early marriage, lack of political participation and challenges in addressing violence against women (VAW), to consider why the nature of Area C further complicates the possibility to reverse these challenges.
