International Women’s Day

UNESCO Ramallah Office marked the International Women’s Day in March in close coordination with UN Women Office in Palestine, through Palestine’s only Female-led radio station, Nisaa FM (Women FM) with a series of activities that spanned across an entire week.  The activities varied between radio segments featuring successful women in different fields, radio awareness spots which were announced 4 times a day, “Vox Pops” which aired during peak hours and solicited 80 university students and young people for their opinions, leading to the highlight of the celebration: a debate episode.
 The debate was organized and lead by UNESCO, and shed the light on the challenges facing women during COVID-19 in their field of work. UNESCO ensured the success of the debate, which was the fourth of the series of ResiliArt Debates organized by the UNESCO Culture Unit, by providing an expert presenter and debate leader.
The attendants, all leaders in their fields of expertise, had the chance to introduce their organizations and their work aimed towards guarding Palestinian heritage in a one-hour live broadcast during the radio peak hour.
