V-Day Visits Israel and Palestine
From Thursday, December 19 through Saturday, December 21, V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls, will travel to Israel and Palestine to listen intensively to Israeli and Palestinian women as they discuss their urgent need for women's security, equality, justice and peace. Like previous V-Day visits, including those in Afghanistan, Kenya, Rome, the Philippines, Brussels and Kosovo among other countries, the meetings will be with a diverse group of Israeli and Palestinian women politicians, grassroots leaders, artists, doctors, intellectuals and teenagers amidst a variety of locations and activities.
The V-Day delegation, comprised of several prominent U.S. women artists, activists, and philanthropists - including V-Day Founder/Playwright Eve Ensler, V-Counsel member/Activist/Actress Jane Fonda, and V-Day Special Representative Hibaaq Osman - will attend the gatherings to listen, discuss, learn, explore and support the work, joint peace initiatives and other strategies of Israeli and Palestinian women, teenagers and young girls to promote women's status.
Following the visit, V-Day will work to amplify the women's voices in the international community and media and to bring back specific actions or recommendations to policy makers to develop real security for women and girls.
NO INTERVIEWS ARE BEING SCHEDULED AT THIS TIME. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE ANY STATEMENTS THAT MAY BE RELEASED AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE VISIT, PLEASE EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org
