"She holds a master’s degree in International Human Rights Law and is married with four children. Her career path was fraught with obstacles: “I was the only woman in a group of 37 men from Gaza and the West Bank when I was first appointed in the Public Prosecution Office. I’m proud to say I paved the way for other women to join the field. She explains that her job is what enables her to defend the less fortunate members of society. “At the personal level, I wondered whether I’d be able to work in a field that had long been dominated by men,” she says. “Crime investigation, sexual violence, financial and security crimes… my professional experience is proof that I can.””
