International Women’s Day

For international Women’s Day this year, the Social Development Committee organized a cultural event; one hundred women came from all of Haifa’s social groups. The women learned of the origin of Palestinian women’s art of celebration and singing, and listened to local rhythms sung by women. The SDC’s Khulud Furani-Sirya held a dialogue with professionals who broke boundaries and challenged themselves and those around them. They included the first female cosmetic surgeon, the founder and principal of a school for arts and creativity, a specialist in child growth who founded a children’s daycare that emphasizes healthy child growth and practices an untraditional curriculum.
