Empowering Women in Nablus

December 15, 2013

Tel Aviv University graduate student Molly Lower works for Women’s Voices Now as Co-Editor of The WVoice and a Global Tour Coordinator. In this podcast, she recounts a WVN film festival and conference she helped organize in Nablus, generously hosted by Tomorrow’s Youth Organization.
