Palestinian Women Political Prisoners Part 2

  “I steal moments of happiness but it’s never complete....” Abla Sa'adat






Today, in the second part of the two-part series on Palestinian women political prisoners, I am in conversation with two women directly affected by the incarceration of their loved ones. Abla Sa'adat is a feminist activist and wife of Ahmad 'Sa'adat,  general director of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, who is serving a 30-year sentence in Israeli prison for his political activism. Shirin Abu Fannouneh is the eldest daughter of Shatha Odeh who was arrested and imprisoned in July 2021 as "security threat." 


In this two-part series, my goal is to reveal the multiple layers of incarceration itself, the experiences of women prisoners, and the harmful impacts on them, their families, and wider Palestinian society. Listen to a detail discussion of the prisoners' and families' experiences of being trageted by the Israeli militarized political system intent suppressing political activism and all other civil society attempts by Palestinian people to free their country.
