Palestine: Violence against women in refugees camps

Documentary film

Wednesday 10 April 2013, by siawi3

“ABAAD-Resource Center for Gender Equality in partnership with UNRWA and General Union of Palestinian Women in Lebanon launched its new resource: ’Ana Ahlam’ - a 15-minute documentary film depicting the lives of Palestinian women victims of gender-based violence in refugees camps in Lebanon.

Ana Ahlam is based on a play that that is a story. ABAAD through this resource tries to raise awareness and empower women about their rights, and to speak up against violence.

Ana Ahlaam is the first ever documentary made by the Palestinian refugee community themselves. This is what makes this documentary so real, as it makes it more likely to reach the audience and combat GBV in the community.”
