Movie Screening of “Three Quarters” - Foundation Office Lebanon
This portlet should not exist anymore
As part of the project for “Syrian refugee women’s employment in times of conflict; prospects and challenges”, the Arab Resource Center for Popular Arts (ARCPA), commonly known as AL-JANA, has documented stories that reflect the perspective of six courageous Palestinian and Syrian refugee women to discuss alternatives to conflict reduction, and synthetize society towards the problems faced by working refugee women.
The Syrian working women are not receiving compassion from members of other nationality. Due to the lower wages they demand, Syrian women have become a threat to the employment of the Lebanese, a fact that is resulting in derision between the refugee population and the host communities. Furthermore, within their own community the working refugee women are merely tolerated. Instead of receiving appreciation for their effort, they are exploited by their own men.
The screening of the movie will be followed by discussions to encourage the reduction of social tensions and conflict among the communities.
