One of the dramas involving the Palestinian people, in addition to the difficult socio-political situation, is that a very large number of their men are in Israeli prisons. What about the struggle of the women left behind? I sought to respond to this question in my work “(Single) Women”, which tells the story of the mothers, wives and daughters of Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons. Waiting for the return of their men, these women struggle to support their families, both economically and emotionally, often finding themselves with many children to raise, and I was intrigued by how the lives of these women are suspended as they wait for the return of their men.
