Highly educated Palestinian women struggle to find jobs

    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.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from the occupied West Bank.
