A progressive feminist community organization. Founded in 1980, struggles to build a progressive, democratic Palestinian civil society free of all forms of discrimination in pursuit of justice. The Union aims to improve the status and empowerment of Palestinian women to ensure true equality between men and women and social justice for all groups of society. The Union is an integral part of the Palestinian national movement, which is struggling to get rid of the Israeli occupation. Together with all Arab and global progressive movements, it fights against the aggressiveness of globalization and against all forms of discrimination and injustice to which any social group in the world, specifically women, is exposed to.
