The first half of the 1940s witnessed a cultural and social efflorescence in Palestinian Arab society, particularly among the educated elite in the towns and urban localities, but also spreading into villages and rural areas. Sports and literary clubs were founded in Palestine which made Palestinians more active in attending lectures, concerts, poetry readings, and theater presentations. In 1936, the Palestinian Broadcasting Service was established and developed special programs for women and girls. Prominent women renowned for their political, charitable, or literary endeavors were often broadcasted on the radio. The period witnessed mounting pan-Arab sentiments and involvement throughout the Mashriq, as politicians from other Arab states increasingly played an active role in attempts to resolve the Arab-Jewish conflict.
