Inequalities facing Women living in Area C of the occupied Palestinian territories’ West Bank

This paper seeks to analyze three phenomena that all demonstrate the manifestations of inequalities that exist in the lives of Palestinian women living in Area C of the West Bank. By first reviewing some of the characteristics of Area C, the paper then deconstructs early marriage, lack of political participation and challenges in addressing violence against women (VAW) to consider why the nature of Area C further complicates the possibility to reverse these three mentioned challenges.
