how feminism would help palestine ?

This questions is very vague. This can be interpreted in two ways: How feminism would help Palestinian women, or how feminism would help Palestine’s situation. Feminism would do wonders for Palestinian women. They are oppressed on a daily basis, and I have experienced this oppression by sexual harassment, sexism, and misogyny. I once went to Ramallah when I was 11 and I was wearing shorts, and men of all ages, even ones aged like my grandpa, came up to me and harassed me. I repeat, I was only ELEVEN. Feminism would stop the extreme amount of sexual harassment Palestinian women go through everyday. We are not allowed to wear “revealing” clothing, or go out late at night, or express our views and opinions, or be liberal, or have tattoos or piercings, etc.. In Palestine, women are expected to get married and raise children and be a housewife as soon as they graduate. Feminism defies that notion. Many young Palestinian women and men are embracing the idea of feminism and realizing the importance of equality and stopping sexism and misogyny. It would help Palestinian women tremendously. As for how feminism would help Palestine’s situation, it wouldn’t. That’s an issue of Zionism.

Describe your greatest success?

Learning how to love myself.

Here’s an excerpt from a memoir-type fictional short story I wrote on that called How to Fall in Love with Yourself in One Summer 

(and right now if you donate anything on the little paypal button on my blog, or if you pledge anything on my patreon page, which also has some other rewards on it, then I’ll email you the full How to short story bc I’m trying to get some money to enter me some writing contests)

Should there be any difference in the tone of voice used in reading verse and prose?

Well, verse has a traditional feel to it. It’s rhyme and meter are deliberate. It’s very common in traditional poetry, tying closely with a strongly structured rhythm.

Prose is more relaxed. It is essentially written the way that we normally converse. When you’re having a conversation with your best friend, if you were to write it down, that would be a prime example of prose.

I hope that helped :) Thanks for asking me, sweetie!
