In the Gaza strip, unemployment is high – the World Bank says it’s got the highest unemployment rate in the world at times. And among those who do have a job, there have traditionally been very few women. But a women’s association in the Gaza strip - the Zakher Society - says an increasing number of women are now looking for ways to earn a living.
