In spite of the mounting interest in the issue of violence against women, literature on this subject is still very limited in the Palestinian society. Official and non-official perspectives of violence against women and mechanisms of combating it are different. This difference is reflected on justifying violence and leniency towards violence exercised by the spouse and other relatives. Therefore, the Study seeks to explore the types of violations that women are exposed to in Gaza Strip and the West Bank, as well as the impact of those violations on the conditions of the women’s rights in Palestine.
