A longtime grant recipient of the Hadassah Foundation, Israel Women’s Network (IWN) aims to eradicate gender-based violence, promote gender equality in the workplace, and raise the socio-economic status of women in Israel.

After October 7, IWN expanded its legal-aid hotline, which is providing multilingual and multicultural guidance – including information on their rights and how to access government resources – to thousands of women throughout Israel who have lost their jobs or are unable to work as a result of the war. IWN also helped mobilize hundreds of Israeli women’s organizations to create a strong, unified voice calling on international bodies to acknowledge and condemn the gender-based violence Hamas committed on October 7.
