Part of Dundee Women's Festival 2022


The theme this year is "Today's Women Shape Tomorrow's World", 5th-20th March 2022.

Our event showed how women in Palestine work to maintain hope for a future beyond occupation by resisting forcefully but peacefully.

Our event was held on Sunday 6th March 2022 6:00pm-7:30pm.


In 2004 Zaytoun, a Community Interest Company, was founded to support Palestinian farmers and their families through fair trade. Central to Zaytoun's mission is accessing markets for local producers and sharing their stories.

We will hear stories that celebrate the women behind Zaytoun products. Engaged in their local community, the women of Deir Ballout manage home life and work to support their families while living under Israeli military occupation which threatens their livelihoods and lands. Their hospitality, skill, and steadfast resilience is truly humbling and inspiring.

Talk and discussion hosted by the Dundee-Nablus Twinning Association to promote friendship and understanding.
