NCJW, Israel Women’s Network, and 140+ Women’s Organizations Call for Urgent Action – Response to UN Women’s Statement of October 13
We strongly implore UNWomen – and all other human rights agencies – to gravely condemn the
brutal attack and atrocities committed by Hamas to Israeli citizens as well as the abduction of
innocent hostages, to urgently act to protect the special humanitarian rights of women and children,
and to do everything in their power to expose and recognize these atrocious and horrific acts of
violence against women and girls and to bring the release of all hostages immediately.
