Gender and National Identity Development among Palestinian Women Student Activists in Israel.
Makkawi, Ibrahim A.
This paper focuses on a unique group of Palestinian women--those who live and attend college in Israel. The paper explores the developmental and social-psychological processes leading to gender and national identity achievement among female Palestinian student activists in the Israeli universities and the dialectical relationship between these two identities. The paper points out that to speak about the experiences of Palestinian women students in Israel, aside from the historical depth of the Palestinian Women's Movement (PWM) and its contribution to gender awareness among Palestinian women activists, simplifies a series of complex issues. The paper presents a brief survey of the four historical phases of the PWM from before 1948 until today, with emphasis on the interaction between the national struggle and the women's struggle within it. It presents and describes a study conducted with Palestinian student activists in Israel and discusses the findings pertaining to the female participants of the study.
