West Bank Magazine to Deal with Topics of Interest to Women

Women’s Lib is coming to the occupied Jordanian West Bank–if only in print. A new bimonthly newspaper devoted mainly to social and educational matters of interest to women will make its first appearance near week’s end. It will be called “Fataat Falastin,” or “The Palestinian Woman.” Two other Arab newspapers are published regularly in the West Bank, The nearly-three-year-old El Kuds (“Jerusalem”), which is vehemently anti-Israel and is also read by many Israeli Arabs, claims a circulation of 18,000. Al Bashir (“The Messenger”) is published weekly.
