Sandie Hanna is a feminist, human rights and anti-imperialist activist from Occupied Palestine.
She truly believes that dismantling oppression towards social and political collective liberation necessarily requires bold commitment to intersectionality, intergenerational connectedness and politicisation among others. Sandie is a member of the women’s rights regional network Karama; and the founder of Feminist Diaries, a collective of young women and girls that analyse and produce art to share stories about their activism journeys, their lived realities and the feminist world they want to co-shape.
Prior to Purposeful, she held positions of programme management and advocacy at the Palestinian Working Woman Society for Development, and led community based interventions with adolescents and children using art therapeutic approaches. Her film “25/11” addresses the so called “honour killing” criticising patriarchal dominance and asymmetries in gender relations, perpetuated by social norms and the in-effect outdated discriminatory laws in Palestine.
