This report aims to examine the situation of women in Israeli occupied East Jerusalem and outline the violations suffered by them as a direct result of the demolitions and evictions carried out by the Israeli authorities. The destruction and confiscation of homes is not an issue that only affects women but it does affect them more acutely and in a gender specific way. To place the issue within it’s context it will be useful to briefly examine the Israeli settlement policy in East Jerusalem and the overall framework surrounding the demolition of houses and forced evictions in the city.
