Gaza war widows struggle to survive

Hundreds of Palestinian widows struggle to feed families after Israel's war.

    Ten months after Israel’s war on the Gaza Strip, the effects of the deadly offensive are still being deeply felt.

    Hundreds of Palestinian women lost their husbands in the war and have had to step into their husbands' roles as the main breadwinners in their families.

    Al Jazeera's Barbra Serra reports from Gaza, where women traditionally used to stay at home to take care of their children.

    Now, many widows are struggling to find work.
