Dr Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian is a feminist, Palestinian professor at the Hebrew University in East Jerusalem. Drawing on her practises as a social worker for vulnerable Palestinian women, she passionately advocates that critical scholarship should attentively listen to the personal stories of women and girls. For Tijdschrift voor Genderstudies, she spoke about often unnoticed and unclassified acts of women’s resistance in Palestine. On the far-reaching consequences of Israel’s practise of house demolition and on why this cannot be understood without looking at Zionist ongoing dispossession of Palestinians. By eloquently moving from the very personal to the political and from the very local to the global, Dr Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian puts forward a critical analysis of Palestinian women’s experiences under Israeli settler colonialism.
