Thursday, 25 November: International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women 2021.

From World WIZO Chairperson Anita Friedman: โ€œWhen they are abandoned to their fate - we should be perturbed about their future, troubled not only by the violence itself and the rate at which it is increasing, but also from the fact that nobody is disturbed by this phenomenon. Tens of thousands of women have been forgotten, they live in fear, subject to the unpredictability of the men who live or have lived with them, submissive and afraid of their partners every whim, without having an address to turn to, a policeman to complain to, a judge to plead with, or God to have mercy on them. Their distress should bother us.

I stand before you today and say: The situation is difficult, but having said that, I am proud, enormously proud, that we at WIZO - are keeping it together and holding on. We may be the band aid that doesn't cover the entire lump, but the services we provide are a definite ย "yeah" amongst the huge shortage, and this glimmer of light is important, as it leads the way to more lights. And to those women who are victims of abuse, I say: you are worthy, you are important, and you are the center of our attention. We are by your side as you deal with these hard times with the hope of building a bridge to a wonderful future.โ€ #always #doingwhatmatters ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Thursday, 25 November: International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women 2021.

*Spot the signs โ€“ stop the abuse:* 

In the lead up to the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25, WIZO has launched "Breaking the Silence" โ€“ a campaign to raise public awareness on the subtle signs of non-physical violent behavior. Domestic violence is not just physical โ€” it comes in many forms. Spotting the signs, the red flags and warning signals of abuse, could help to save  lives.  WIZOโ€™s data showed that 26 women were murdered in Israel in 2020 by their partners, compared to 17 women in 2019. There was also a massive uptake in the number of distress calls made to the 118 domestic violence hotlines, from 2,286 calls in 2019 to 5,866 calls a year later, a 157% increase. Of these, more than half were instances of spousal violence, also known as intimate partner violence; the number of calls related to spousal violence jumped from 688 calls in 2019 to 2,853 calls in 2020, a 315% spike. There is clearly much work to be done. And WIZO will work tirelessly to help women, children and families.

"This program has been a dizzying success from the beginning, but now more than ever we are experiencing a huge increase in demand that we don't know how to explain," says Rivka Neuman, director of WIZO's Division for the Advancement of the Status of Women, when she talks about the "Behind Closed Doors: the Invisible Children" program in Israel. The program's objective is to train professionals on how to identify and treat children who have experienced violence in their family even if it means only as a witness to violence and not a direct victim.

The rationale behind the program is that a child who has witnessed domestic violence experiences more severe post-trauma and emotional damage than a child who is a direct victim of violence. In spite of this, there is nobody that oversees treatment for these children, and the emotional and psychological damage they suffer is not recognized by the establishment. A few years ago, WIZO decided to take action, launching a program for physicians, nurses, health care professionals in Tipat Halav (baby welfare) clinics, counselors, teachers, child development professionals and other stakeholders, calling for them to undergo training on how to identify children bearing the scars of domestic violence, and refer them to relevant therapy programs.

The program was an instant success and its popularity grew steadily, leading to a collaboration with the Ministry of Health, later on with the Ministry of Welfare, local authorities, and other public agencies.

WIZO Israel maintains that "This is a  program that alters reality. It deals with an important and untreated issue, and thanks to this initiative, widespread recognition is being garnered for the urgent need to address this issue".

MESSAGE FROM WORLD WIZOโ—โ— World WIZO Stands in Solidarity with Miss South Africa:
The Women's International Zionist Organisation (WIZO) has always supported and advocated for the right to equal opportunity for women. Throughout our 101 year history as a global social justice movement and one of Israel's leading civil society organisations, we have ensured that the voice of women is heard from issues ranging from suffrage to parity and now the right for all to represent their countries in an international event that provides a platform for their unique humanitarian work.
Next month, the State of Israel will welcome women from around the world for the Miss Universe pageant. This is not only an opportunity for our country to introduce these accomplished young women to our vibrant and diverse democracy but it is also a celebration of different cultures and countries. We are delighted that for the first time in the history of the Miss Universe pageant, we will see representatives from Morocco and the United Arab Emirates, our partners in peace.
 WIZO extends our support to Miss South Africa, Lalela Mswane and hope to welcome her to Israel. The Miss Universe pageant is non-political in nature and should not be a battlefield in which the assault on Israel's sovereignty is fought. It is our hope that the South African government will see the opportunity of hope and international spirit the pageant represents and support Miss South Africa in her efforts to achieve her goals.

WIZO NSW marks the 83rd anniversary of the Reichspogromnacht. The pogroms known globally as Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, which occurred on 9 & 10 November 1938, carried out by the Nazi Party's Sturmabteilung paramilitary forces along with civilians throughout Germany, Austria and the Sudetenland. Over 7,000 Jewish businesses, synagogues, hospitals and homes were damaged or destroyed. The name Kristallnacht refers to shards of broken glass left in the streets after the carnage of pillaged and destroyed livelihoods, when Jewish artifacts and treasures, books, and precious possessions were smashed and burned. 
The Reichspogromnacht was MORE than just broken glass. It was the beginning of the worst period in modern history as many Jews were rounded up and taken to concentration camps, others killed in cold blood.  It was a prelude to the Final Solution and the murder of six million Jews during the Holocaust. #wizoremembers #neveragain #kristallnacht #reichspogromnacht1938 WIZO NSW marks the 83rd anniversary of the Reichspogromnacht.

At WIZO, we know that the first three years are crucial to the child's development. The WIZO early childhood model promotes healthy cognitive, social, emotional, and motor skills,  language, and literacy, giving our precious children the best start in life.
WIZO early childhood teachers and caregivers provide this service to the children in WIZO's care. It is a labor of love. Demanding and taxing. We believe the caregiver also deserves the best, and our devotion to duty embraces not just the children, but those who care for them. They too are precious.
That is the WIZO way.
