Women in Gaza, facing restrictions in public activism, find outlet online

Palestinian activists in Gaza have been speaking out against a range of issues: the Israeli siege, the treatment of prisoners held in Israeli prisons and the Hamas-led government’s recent attempts to implement religious policies. But for women, the freedom to express themselves and engage in political activities is largely limited. In the conservative, male-dominated society it can be challenging  for women to take their voices to the street, but through social media they are finding other means. FSRN’s Lena Odgaard reports from Gaza.
