Q&A with activist Naila Ayesh and producer Jen Marlowe about non-violent resistance and women’s leadership, empowerment and participation in Palestine.

Journalist Bahram Sadeghi speaks with activist Naila Ayesh and producer Jen Marlowe about the making this documentary and the involvement of women’s leadership and participation in non-violent resistance in Palestine.

Naila Ayesh was imprisoned twice for her resistance to the Israeli rule of the occupied Palestinian territories. Her two spells in jail would not diminish her will to stay politically active. It is often overlooked that women played a key role in the first Palestinian intifada, the popular uprising against Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories. The documentary Naila and the Uprising sets the record straight. Ayesh continues to work to advance Palestinian women’s leadership, empowerment and participation. She is happy that her story is now being told. Read more about Naila Ayesh and watch a short clip.
