Palestinian woman gets harmed

Palestinian woman gets harmed | Burned Alive Palestine | Scoop.it
Tianna Pawlicki's insight:

This photo relates to my topic because Palestinian women are being harmed by men every day in the most worst way. This photo is very degrading to women and I hate it. There is probably no reason for these men to touch a woman like that.

After escaping domestic violence, homelessness, Auburn woman finds normalcy for daughter, self

After escaping domestic violence, homelessness, Auburn woman finds normalcy for daughter, self | Burned Alive Palestine | Scoop.it
AUBURN | Within the walls of the domestic violence shelter, Sandra struggled to make her daughter feel at home.
Tianna Pawlicki's insight:

In the article, I read about a woman named Sandra who was in an abusive relationship. One she couldn't get out of. She had no father growing up, because he committed suicide. She was very sad, so she put her love in the hands of men. She once brought home her African American boyfriend, who her mom did not accept at all. So, Sandra moved out of the house and started working. Then, she met Thomas. A man who she put all of her love into and thought he would never do anything to hurt her. She ended up getting pregnant by him, and he ended up going off to prison for drugs. Knowing that Thomas wasn't going to be in her baby's life, she had her doubts and dissatisfaction. When he got out of prison, Sandra soon found out that Thomas had married another woman. Then, on Mother's Day of 2009, he first struck her. An enraged Thomas choked her, then threw blinds at her. Missing his aim, he hit his daughter. He felt bad, then took her out for ice cream. The violence did not stop after that, at all. Years later, Sandra had to do something she would never have to do. She had to give her daughter to a close family member.
This article relates to my book because it has to deal with domestic violence. Sandra and Souad both deal with domestic violence in their lives. And, they both happen to be from people that they thought loved them. They both also did not have any way, nor did they have the guts too until later on. It's terrible to think that these women had to suffer with domestic abuse, considering that they are women who did absolutely nothing wrong. Souad's situation is somewhat different though. Because, the person that burned her alive, was her brother. Sandra's abuser was her boyfriend.

Burned Alive: A Survivor of an "Honor Killing" Speaks Out: Souad, Marie-Therese Cuny: 9780446694872: Amazon.com: Books

Burned Alive: A Survivor of an "Honor Killing" Speaks Out [Souad, Marie-Therese Cuny] on Amazon.com. *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. When Souad was seventeen she fell in love. In her West Bank village, as in so many others, sex before marriage is considered a grave dishonor to one's family and is punishable by death. This was her crime. Her brother-in-law was given the task of meting out her punishment. One morning while Souad was washing the family's clothes
Tianna Pawlicki's insight:

My book was about a Palestinian girl who was a victim to an honor killing by being burned alive. In Palestine (according to Souad, which is not her real name) being born a girl is a curse. You live a terrible life and getting treated very badly, no matter what you do. She states in the book that she wasn't even treated like a human. She was treated like an animal. Men in Palestine treat woman terribly. Even Souad's mother knows it. Souad can count numerous times she has seen her mother strangle or kill a child that was a girl just so they wouldn't have to suffer in the "man-ruled" Palestine. In the book, Souad gets tricked into having a baby from a man she thought cared about her. He ended up leaving her, having her deal with it. Her brother said that he would deal with the problem, by pouring gasoline all over her and lighting her on fire. She ends up being sent to the hospital where she survives, and gives her baby up for adoption.
The scopes in the story would be man vs. woman, and woman vs. society. It is man vs. woman because the men in Palestine feel the need to control the women. And it also seems, that the men don't really ever do anything about it. I have yet to see an example of men in Palestine, stick up for women. They are treated terribly. It is also is woman vs. society, because in their society, woman are pretty much looked below animals. As in, animals are treated better than woman. It is honestly a shame and I think that the Souad deserved way better. Just because she got pregnant out of wedlock does not mean its the end of the world. I think the Palestine society should be ashamed of themselves and how they treat women.

Palestine woman gets stoned

Tianna Pawlicki's insight:

A woman in Palestine gets buried, neck under, and gets stoned. You can see that she got hurt from whomever threw the rocks. This picture is very sad, that you feel for this woman and whatever it is she had "done".

Living under occupation: Daily Life in Occupied Palestine - YouTube

A film made by EFA MEPs François Alfonsi, Jill Evans and Ana Miranda during their visit to the West Bank and East Jerusalem. http://efa.greens-efa.eu/living-...
Tianna Pawlicki's insight:

In this documentary, a group of American people go into Palestine with cameras, to show the real suffering of Palestinian people in general. Not just women (although it shows women being verbally abused) but although men. They state and show how rude the soldiers in Palestine are.

Palestine-Israel Journal: Women in Islam

Palestine-Israel Journal: Women in Islam | Burned Alive Palestine | Scoop.it
The Palestine-Israel Journal is a non-profit organization, founded in 1994 by Ziad AbuZayyad and Victor Cygielman, two prominent Palestinian and Israeli journalists, and was established concurrently with the first phases of the Oslo peace process to encourage dialogue between civil societies on both sides and broaden the base of support for the peace process.
Tianna Pawlicki's insight:

In this article, they interview a man named Hanan Riyan Bakri. They ask him questions about Palestinian woman, and he answers them honestly. He states that when woman have children, whether boy or girl, their education is a top priority. But, if they were to have two children of different sex, the boy child would be put first. They believe that their sons will learn to take care of them when their older, whereas the girl child will just get married and go to someone else's family. He also states that they are trying to make laws for the independence of women. Also, women who work (of they even do or are allowed to) make 2 times less than men. Which is obviously very degrading and is not fair at all to the women. They have families to feed and take care of. When women are married, they now have a right to have a divorce, that is if injustice is found. Clothing is also very important and seems to be the most important thing that a woman should take care of. She DOES have the freedom to work, and study but she cannot wear what she wants. It will be frowned upon and probably against her religion. All in all, women in Islam or Palestine DO have some rights, but it comes to a point. Palestinians are very strict with their religion and culture and they respect it very well. 
This article relates to my story because it shows how women are treated from a real point of view. Just like Souad's story, the interview asks the questions we are all thinking about. What is really going on in Palestine? He says that women are not treated as equally as men, (as said in Souad's story), but it pretty much talks about the laws in Palestine. It states the legal boundaries of Palestine. Which really wasn't brought up in the book. The book mainly focused on the harsh topics of being a woman in Palestine. But, in the interview, he just mentions the laws, and legal terms.

Tianna Pawlicki's insight:

Palestine, also known as the Holy Land, is located in Southeast Asia. Palestine is mainly a "prize" of land, that many countries and territories have tried to ruled over. It is off of the border between Lebanon and Israel. Palestine also includes the Dead Sea, which a very famous sea that draws a lot of attraction.
