Illuminating podcast on the lives of Palestinian women

An excellent, illuminating compilation of personal narratives of Palestinian Christian women discussing the impact of the political and social realities on their private lives, the faith which guides them and their will and resolve to overcome all odds. The personal struggles, dreams, and aspirations each woman shares is something that resonates with all women and transcends culture, religion, and political realities. The podcast gives voice to voices often drowned out by patriarchal norms and political and religious cacophonies. A recommended listen indeed!
