On this week’s program, we will hear the second part of Dr. Zeina Zaatari’s interview on the women’s movement in Palestine with Professor Eileen Kuttab, Director of Institute of Women Studies in Birzeit University in Palestine about the history of women’s movement in Palestine.

Later in the program, we’ll hear a special feature on the occasion of the third anniversary of Rachel Corrie’s murder in occupied Palestine, with two exclusive interviews; one with the International Solidarity Movement’s co-founder Huwaida Arraf, who will join us in the studio to give us some background on the work done by the ISM and on Rachel Corrie’s legacy; in the other interview, we’ll be joined from London by Guardian journalist and playwright Katherine Viner, who co-wrote a play titled "My Name is Rachel Corrie," which was cancelled in New York because of pressure from Zionist groups trying to silence Rachel Corrie a second time.
