WOMEN’S AFFAIRS TECHINCAL COMMITEE
The Women’s Affairs Technical Committee (WATC) is a women’s non-governmental organization established in 1992 with a vision that aspires for “a democratic and free Palestinian society that ensures plurality, social justice and equality between women and men.” WATC’s mission is to coordinate efforts of interested and committed stakeholders, partner and associates to mobilize the public to achieve socio-political influence and realize political, civil, social, economic and cultural rights of women’s in armed conflicts and natural disasters under occupation.
Our approach is to empower women’s grassroots committees, CBOs, and women generally at the intellectual, practical and organizational level to achieve binding national legislation consistent with international covenants and agreements, mainly the Convention on Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).
WATC endeavors to empower these agencies to stand by women claiming their rights and pressure and monitor decision-making bodies with obligations to ensure they perform their duties. We emphasize that enabling women achieve their full rights requires intensive popular struggle against the occupation and its practices; it also needs national mobilization of women to participate in the struggle of their people alongside with standing against societal and patriarchal forms that hinders women’s value and rights. We therefore need to express clearer and more audacious stances in combatting violations of women’s rights by any party.
The overall objective of the project is to empower and connect young Palestinian women and men to advance Gender Justice through digital space. Project partners will work towards mobilizing safe, accessible and inclusive digital rights and space by promoting Women's political participation and leadership (WPPL), women's rights, and Gender based violence (GBV) prevention. Through different approaches and methodologies, the project will promote knowledge and capacity to contribute to the prevention and response to cybercrime and GBV. Empower youths, especially young Palestinian women, to exercise their agency and leadership through a safe, accessible, and inclusive digital space.
