At the turn of the 20th century, individuals from across Europe brought their pioneering spirit and ideals of a revolution to Palestine, with a dream to create a new and more equal society.

Among these pioneers were the fierce women who came to Palestine to realize the dream of creating a new woman in a new world. Through amazing found footage and personal diaries, The Women Pioneers uncovers the course of their passionate battles and painful disappointments, dedicating their lives to realize their personal liberation and national struggle.
