Israel Observatory on Femicide



Executive Summary

The Israel Observatory on Femicide was established in November 2020, and is funded by private donations, but directed from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to retain neutrality. The Israel Observatory aims at monitoring femicide in Israel, providing data to NGOs and governmental sources, and analyzing the narratives of femicide quantitatively and qualitatively to prevent femicide in the future. While the Observatory focuses on trends in Israel – including the fate of Palestinian women killed dishonorably in honor killings – its reach is global. That is why it is hosting speakers from Zimbabwe, Kosovo, New Zealand, South Africa, North Caucasus and more. It is giving a voice not only to the issue of femicide in Israel, but to the plight of women in all conflict-ridden societies, including the Ukraine.
