Follow the Women: To Peace and Justice
Follow the Women in Beit Sahour
"Follow the Women" is an organization of women cyclists that rode their bicycles from Aleppo through Lebanon and Jordan to the West Bank in solidarity with Palestinians. Half of them were not allowed by the Israelis to cross the border from Jordan. The ride included Palestinian women cyclists who had recently formed their own cycling club (whether they will be able to cycle around in the prison they live in is another issue).
