Summary Palestinian Women is the first book to examine and document the experiences and historical narrative of ordinary Palestinian women who witnessed the events of 1948 and became involuntary citizens of the State of Israel. Known in Palestinian discourse as the Nakba, or the Catastrophe, these events of sixty years ago still powerfully resonate in contemporary Palestinian-Jewish relations
