[Women in Black] was often scary. Not so much the standing there... But the going to it and the coming back afterwards were intense. Many women experienced that. Because there you were, on a Friday afternoon in Jerusalem, and you were dressed in black. So it was clear where you had been, where you stood politically, and it made you something of a target... Coming home on the bus, you weren't standing with a whole group of people, you were by yourself on the bus. And that, most of all, was the courageous part for me. I found that harder than traveling on the West Bank.
