More than 200 women are pictured as they wait in line to buy clothing from #HassidicWomen in the northern Gaza Strip on April 15, 2020, after an eight-hour day of humanitarian aid.
The group, which is affiliated with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, has long used women as sexual property and uses them to perform rituals, including in rituals for the male members of its Islamic Jihad branch, to ensure that their men have no opportunity to kill them.
Many of the women are dressed in traditional clothing that features a long white skirt and stockings, a pair of white high heels, a long black dress and a veil.
Some have a hijab covering their head and are seen wearing a skullcap that covers their eyes.
In some cases, the women have been told to remove their hijab as they are forbidden from covering their faces.
The #HamaWomen have been selling clothes to raise funds for the humanitarian effort.
“It’s our right to wear what we want, but we can’t hide,” said Aisha, a woman who wore a white dress.
Aisha, 28, said that since the war broke out in the Gaza Strip in 2014, her husband had been killed in the conflict and her daughter had been injured.
She said she was able to go to school without her veil because she had no one to support her financially.
Hamas women’s rights activist Aisha Khader said she bought a dress from #Herakazi for her daughter.
She said the shop owner told her that she could have her daughter return to school if she paid with her money.
Aisha Khaders family was devastated by the war, she said.
Her daughter’s family lost her to the conflict.
She used to go out with her mother to buy groceries.
As the #Heraks family fled Gaza, they used to buy clothes from shops in the neighborhood, she added.
After the conflict, #HerAKazi started selling clothes in order to cover the cost of the items.
It was a good way to make money for the families, Aisha said.
Women from #HERAKazi also sell clothes to children and women who have lost their husbands.
One woman who sells the clothes said she does not sell clothes for men, but for women.
For the women, #HERAs clothes are also meant to symbolize their freedom, she explained.
#HerAKazis clothing has been selling for about four months.
When we first entered #Gaza, the clothes were in very good condition, but when we went back to Gaza, the clothing became less expensive, said #Hakaa, a #Hajar who sold #HerArkazis clothes.
We sold some of our clothing, which was used as currency in the shop.
The women are trying to raise money to help their family.
They have to buy the clothes at least twice a month to make ends meet.
If you can buy #HerAzzazi clothes, #Hazirah said.
If you want to buy them for a wedding, buy them in a market, she asked.
It is our duty to wear our clothes and we want to keep doing this.
There are many women who work as a shopkeeper and sell #HerAkazis goods to raise their family’s expenses, said Fatima, a shop keeper.
Our shop sells #HerHakazi clothing, so we do not sell it for profit.
But if you want your daughter to wear her hijab, you can get her to wear it, she continued.
People are also selling #HerKasdia clothing.
Some are selling the garments to pay for medical treatment for relatives.
There are many shops selling #Hams clothes to buy food.
The clothes are used to make clothes for the people who live in Gaza.
Women are selling #her #Haraqa to raise the salaries of their husbands and sons.
Many of #HerAbuMursiya’s women have also been selling their clothes in #Gaza to raise $100 a month for their families.
This is the way to show that we are still here, #MyAbuAl-Mursidiya added.
They are not just clothes, they are our souls.
The #HerDina group said that the women who sell #Hammaz clothes are trying their best to give their daughters the same freedoms they had before the war.
“We have to continue our lives as women, because we have nothing to lose,” #HerDaisy said.
“Our daughters need to have the freedom they have, as women.”
