Ghadir al ShafieAswat
Co-founder and director of Aswat- Palestinian Feminist Center for Sexual and Gender Freedoms
Ghadir al Shafie is a feminist-queer activist who passionately believes in the intersectionality of the struggle of Palestinian queer women, fighting a triple oppression— as Palestinians in the context of Israel’s system of apartheid, military occupation and settler-colonialism; as women in imperialistic male-dominated society; and as queers in the context of pinkwashing and homophobia. She dedicates her work and activism to promoting a greater understanding of and support for sexual and gender freedoms within Palestine and to advocating intersectional solidarity with Palestine in the global femimnist and queer movements. Her interviews and articles appear in various academic and media outlets, Arab and international.
