The protest, organized by women's organizations including the general union of Palestinian women, was held outside the parliament building.
Iktimal Hamad, a member of the union's secretariat, told Ma'an that police ordered protesters to leave the area.
"Women refused to leave, because this is a right for every human being to express their opinions and demand their rights," Hamad told Ma'an.
"We were verbally insulted and hit by fists and sticks. Police tried to arrest some of us but despite that we will continue with our campaign which calls for ending the division," she added. more
