Living Under Israeli Occupation: An Evening with Margo Okazawa-Rey, Feminist Anti-Militarist Activist and Scholar

Margo Okazawa-Rey is currently working and living in Palestine and brings us her compelling perspective on issues such as: what are the daily experiences of Palestinian women living under Israeli Occupation? What have been the impacts of US- and Israeli-led boycott of Hamas leadership of the PNA and of the recent Israeli bombings of Lebanon? What are the responsibilities of US-based progressive feminist activists in addressing the conflict?

These questions will frame the presentation and the conversation that will follow. The talk will include showing a short documentary video about the impacts of the Isolation Wall on women and photographs of the transformation of Dahiya Al- Bareed, formerly a vibrant neighborhood in East Jerusalem, into a near ghost town. There will also be discussion of what it means to live in the Occupied Palestinian Territory as a US woman of color.

For nearly the past two years, Margo has been the Feminist Research Consultant at the Women’s Centre for Legal Aid and Counseling, with offices in East Jerusalem and Ramallah, where she is assisting in establishing a community-based feminist research unit and teaching feminist research methods to local women. Margo Okazawa-Rey’s work in Palestine is an extension of her longstanding commitment to anti-militarist activism and to activist scholarship. She also is Professor at Fielding Graduate University and Professor Emerita of Social Work at San Francisco State University.
