Empowering Palestinian Women to Access Health Care

Boston Workmen's Circle, 1762 Beacon St., Brookline

Rafah Anabtawi, director of the Kayan Feminist Organization since 2013, is a Palestinian Israeli who will speak of her work to enable Palestinian women to gain access to quality health care as one crucial part of their struggle for social equality. A social worker, Rafah also manages a center to combat drug abuse in Nazareth and facilitates groups in cooperation with the Association for Civil Rights in Israel. The Kayan Feminist Organization’s goal is to eliminate gender disparity among Arab women in Israel. It envisions a secure and just society, in which Arab women in Israel enjoy full and equitable opportunities for self-expression and self-actualization. Presented in association with Healing Across the Divide.
