    • Women's voices
      • “Checkpoints look like jails, they are suffocating, I feel entrapped especially when I am trapped between 2 revolving doors.”
      • “I was not allowed to cross checkpoints and see my kids. They were told I was dead, when they saw me they looked as if they saw a ghost.”
      • “I always arrive late to college because of checkpoints. Is there a hidden plan to make us illiterate jobless and poor?”
      • “I have to disembark at the checkpoint, with my pregnancy, it is too nauseating”
    • Entrapped bodies and lives
      • The everydayness of entrapment. Real agony.
      • Destruction of the family network.
      • Obstacle in the face of legal rights.
      • They face difficulty in the accessibility to educational, health, work institutes
      • They face spatial exclusion: the space they are allowed to move in is militarized.
      • The effect of exclusion on women's bodies, lives, time, state of mind.
      • They are excluded economically.
    • Education as liberating
      • Education combats exclusion despite the militarization of spaces and time.
      • Employment combats exclusion and prevents further feminization of poverty.
      • Economic independence promotes gender sensitive life and mode of thinking.
      • Education and employment offer women opportunities to take part in the public sphere in order to reach the status where women will take part in decision making.
