The Rackman Center and Prof. Ruth Halperin-Kaddari, the head of the center, warn, together with the Forum of Law Lecturers and Lecturers for Democracy, that the regime changes will harm women.
The Israeli Law Professors’ Forum for Democracy, an ad hoc voluntary and politically independent group of experts on Israeli law and specifically Israeli public law, views with grave concern the apparent intention to abolish the independence of the judiciary in Israel, to subordinate it to the government and the partisan political considerations of the executive branch, to undermine the independent status of the Attorney-General and the legal advisors to government ministries, and to violate human rights.
In this position paper, and in view of such intention and its implications, we relate to the foreseeable violation of women’s rights, as reflected in the government’s composition and appointments, in the coalition agreements, in the legislative bills proposed by coalition members, and in the actions and declarations of the government and its members.
The conclusion of this position paper is that the totality of actions, commitments, and legislative changes initiated by the government and the coalition will amount to a mortal blow to the rights of all women in Israel, and to a regression in their situation in the gravest manner since the establishment of the state.
