Highly educated Palestinian women struggle to find jobs

Although they are among the most educated in the region, unemployment is high for Palestinian women under the Israeli occupation.

    Women in Palestine are largely more educated than men.

    Thirteen percent hold university degrees, compared to nine percent of the male population.

    But despite their high level of education, many women struggle to find job opportunities.
