"“Our project was at risk because of the pandemic. Lockdowns and movement restrictions made it difficult for us to promote our product,” says a member of the “Green Girls” pea-growing project in Khan Younis. She and her team of women had to be creative to continue their project, especially as it was still in its early phases when the pandemic hit.
Since the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on people worldwide, particularly on women, and the occupied Palestinian territory was no exception. Already dealing with movement restrictions and economic hardship for decades, the women of Palestine now had to succeed in the face of additional obstacles and difficulties brought on by the pandemic."
