dc.description.abstractThe Palestinian women's movement in the Occupied Territories has emerged as an undeniable force on the domestic political scene over the past thirty years. During the Intifada, women seized the opportunity to demonstrate their significance as participants in the struggle for national independence through socio-political organizations that had been developing since the 1970s. Today, these organizations provide a platform from which women address issues beyond those concerned with Palestinian statehood, challenging existing societal norms regarding the rights of women. Beyond the argument that women comprise roughly half of the world's population, there lies a need for comparative studies of women's movements as a viable political force. The politicization of the gender issue in many developing countries is a cause for great concern. The ability of women as a social group to generate support and potentially impact the political infrastructure has gained attention as a vehicle to induce regime change. I contend that when women are given the opportunity to pursue university education, a generation of well-educated, professional women amasses over time. These women have the ability to generate the strength to sustain a feminist movement in parallel to, yet independent of a national movement, as evidenced in the Palestinian caseen_US
