The recent events in Gaza have drawn a great deal of attention around the world. In spite of this, the international community and UN agencies present are not able to provide protection for the civilian population.

During the 27th Session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, WILPF co-sponsored by the permanent mission of Norway to the UN Geneva held a panel discussion on the situation in Gaza. A delegation of three Palestinian women’s rights activists shared their views with Madeleine Rees regarding the human rights violations in Palestine.
