London - On this International Women's Day, let’s celebrate and know the lives of the Palestinian women who face racism, discrimination, theft, and death, in their own homes and land. The women who live their lives with no certainty that the child they sent to school will return to them. The women who sleep fully clothed in case in the middle of the night they are asked to evacuate their homes for demolition.
