Nahda Y. Shehada highlights the ways in which Palestinian women operate within the parameters of their culture. In the story of Salha she shows how women involved in a familial conflict operate as social agents even under the most constraining circumstances. She gives an insight into the struggle of every day life in the unique situation of the escalating and continuing violence of today's Palestine that often, in the name of broader political need, silences knowledge of gender struggles.Development (2004) 47, 103–108. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100006
