Abstract

This article focuses on the observations and coping devices of 17- and 18-year-old Palestinian high school girls in regards to the violence in their streets, homes, and schools that occurred during the two Palestinian uprisings known as Intifadas against Israeli occupation in the West Bank towns of Ramallah and Bethlehem from 1987 to 2004. Based primarily on the oral histories and school diaries of the girls, this article underscores the ways that the Israeli occupation shaped the lives of many young women in Occupied West Bank, Palestine, and the variety of creative responses of these young women to conditions of urban warfare.
