On International Women’s Day, we join the call to #BringBackOurGirls

“This International Women’s Day, my thoughts are with all women who have been the victims of gender-based violence.

“Yesterday, we marked five months since Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad carried out a horrific pogrom in Israel, including terrible acts of sexual violence. 19 women and girls remain among those still held captive by these terrorist organisations in Gaza. I join the call to #BringBackOurGirls.” – Marie van der Zyl, President
