““I am an educational adviser by day, a student by night, and a full-time mother of five children, three of which have special needs,” says this 48-year-old woman who is pursuing her Ph.D. in Special Education in Ramallah. During the COVID-19 crisis, she has had to juggle the responsibilities of family life with a full-time job. But with her best friend on her side, she managed to put a rotation system in place where her best friend and her daughter would stay with the children, while she would study or spend quality time with her husband.
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."
