Women for Palestine seeks to raise awareness of the Palestinians in history and the events that led to their dispossession, displacement and occupation.  It aims to help Australians gain a greater understanding of the Palestinian struggle for justice, peace and self-determination in their homeland through non-violent protest. As women, we believe that a just and peaceful solution must be within the realms of possibility and that we have a responsibility to show our children that all violations of human rights must be challenged and that the pursuit of justice must also have a constructive resolution that does not compromise the rights and dignity of others. All our programs and activities are designed to introduce the Palestinian narrative which has been wilfully suppressed and denied for almost 60 years.

Australians for Palestine engages with all levels of Australian society, and particularly, the media and our parliamentary representatives.  Its main thrust is to defend the legitimate position of Palestinians and challenge the Israeli-weighted opinions and policies that have been increasingly adopted to the detriment of the Palestinian identity in Australia. Further, it seeks to influence members of the Australian Parliament to adopt an even-handed policy on Israel/Palestine within the framework of international law and human rights conventions so that any contraventions will be condemned and the dignity of the individual upheld at all times.
