Petition to the High Court of Justice over the under- represenantion of women in Israel’s national coronavirus experts panel.

Together with our partners in the field, we petitioned the High Court of Justice over the under-representation of women in the Government’s COVID-19 committees and working groups. We demand that action be taken to require giving women an equal voice that also represents the diversity of women in Israel. Especially in crisis situations like this, the needs of minority women, including Palestinian Israelis and Ultra-orthodox Jews, must also be heard and taken into consideration.
