Madleen Kullab

Cultures of Resistance Awardee — Palestine
Madleen Kullab is the founder and leader of the Madleen Fishing Club and the only female fishing captain in Gaza. The club brings together and empowers fisherwomen and the wives of fishermen, as well as trains new fisherwomen so that women can learn new skills to help support their families. At the age of 13, Kullab took over her father’s fishing boat after he got sick. As the first female to take on that role, she faced condemnation from her conservative society and dangers stemming from the Israeli occupation of Gaza. She is using the award to rent a space for the women’s fishing club.
Kullab received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) and is using the award to rent a space for the women’s fishing club.
