On 26 October 1929, Palestinian women launched their women’s movement in Jerusalem.
Approximately 300 women converged into the city from all over Palestine. They held a silent demonstration through a car convoy across the city in protest at the British High Commissioner’s bias against Arabs in the Buraq uprising. This is their story.
