Mission and objectives

The Women' s Affairs Technical Committee (WATC) was established in 1992 in Ramallah as a coalition of women' s grassroots committees and organizations. It strives to empower women socio-politically with the aim of achieving social justice in accordance with the Palestinian Declaration of Independence, the Palestinian Women' s Rights Bill, and international rights conventions.

The WATC has twenty-three full-time and four part-time staff as well as volunteers and works in Jerusalem, Gaza (where there is a branch), and the West Bank. Their general assembly includes sixty-five women, all of them members of Palestinian women' s grassroots committees. The WATC promotes participation and partnership with affiliated organizations and wider communities as well as open, multidirectional communication for the purpose of eliminating all forms of discrimination against women and insisting on human rights for all groups.
