I am passionate about

Actions

I am the founder of a socially-conscious fashion brand which donates proceeds to women's empowerment projects in the West Bank. The apparel is all produced in the West Bank and in Gaza to support the local economy and small businesses. I run and organize feminist workshops in the West Bank to create safe spaces for women to step forward and share their stories. Through the BabyFist's commitment to grass-roots activism and social justice, we are able to add to the conversation about Palestinian women's empowerment. A community has been built in which women can support and uplift one another on the journey of reclaiming women's rights. There is comfort and strength in the chorus of voices that ring with the survival of brutality, isolation, and incrimination.
