V-Day is a movement that has worked for decades in war zones in places like Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq and Sudan. We have been invited into regions that are typically ignored and made invisible to the western world, and – together with our sisters and survivors on the ground – have seen firsthand what war does to women and women’s bodies, what it does to men, what it does to communities regardless of race, religion or geography, and what it does to our collective humanity.

We know how rape and sexual assault is used as a weapon of war and we have always unequivocally condemned it wherever it has happened, whenever it has happened. And we do so now.

We want a feminism that will liberate Palestinian and Israeli women, a feminism with integrity, that is inclusive and committed to solidarity. A feminism that condemns racism, sexism, colonialism, war, occupation, apartheid, genocide, land theft, rape and sexual assault, ethnic cleansing, collective punishment, starvation, and the use of bombing and deadly agents such as white phosphorus.

As a movement that has been committed to these values, we will continue to remain steadfast in serving and supporting women and gender expansive people everywhere — especially those without platforms, resources, and access to media and power.

Join us in demanding a permanent ceasefire and a durable peace, one rooted in dignity, freedom and justice for all. This is the surest and most lasting way to protect the bodies and lives of all Israeli and Palestinian women – now and for future generations.
