The project that the PCPD is implementing is entitled: Palestinian Women in Politics is one of the most important projects under the Women Program at the organization. The Woman Program aims to empower young women and promote their full participation in the political, democratic, and decision-making processes. The overall objective of this project is to empower groups of young women representing women community based organizations to be actively engaged in the policy processes on the national and local levels, leading towards an environment where women are agents of change in their communities; where women can find a safe space in these organizations to be active in the private sphere.
