“I hate being ugly”

A Palestinian woman in the occupied West Bank told Al Jazeera she has never liked to wear ugly shoes because it is degrading to her and her family.

“When I wear ugly shoe I’m a hypocrite,” said Nada.

“I can’t go out to my neighbourhood, I can’t shop in stores.

My family has to be careful to keep their head above water and my husband can’t wear anything that would offend his mother.”

Nada, who lives in the village of Qaddoum in the West Bank, said she started wearing ugly shoes in 2006 when she married her partner of five years.

“I felt that I had to be ugly in order to please my husband,” she said.

“He doesn’t wear any kind of ugly shoes.

He can wear nice shoes.

But he likes ugly shoes.”

Nadia said her husband and daughter are also “very happy” with her new look.

“We are happy and we can live in peace,” she added.

“The women’s rights are not something that is talked about and we don’t feel it.”

The Al Jazeera team visited Qaddoun in January and recorded her daily life on camera.

Qaddoun is surrounded by a fence, and it is not clear how many Palestinians live there.

In a video posted on social media on Sunday, the Israeli military said that it was targeting Palestinian farmers who grow the crops and that it has taken “the necessary steps to protect the lives of Palestinian farmers”.

A recent study by the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees found that in 2014, more than half of Palestinian families lived in tents.

Nada said that she does not have a garden and often feels unsafe when she travels around her village.

“My children have to go to school and the roads are dangerous,” she told Al jazeera.

“We are afraid that they will fall or get hurt.”

The Palestinian-run Palestinian Authority said that since December 2015, the number of Palestinian women who have been killed by Israeli forces has increased by nearly a third, to more than 1,000.

The UN agency said in a statement that the Israeli authorities “must take concrete action to reduce violence against Palestinians and stop the use of disproportionate force”.
