 Israeli exhibition on violence against women opened in Geneva

Israeli artist Keren Goldstein Yehezkali, featuring the clothes of women murdered by their husbands, opened Tuesday at the United Nations European Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

According to the organizers, the installation called "No More" aims to raise awareness of the phenomenon of violence against women in order to intensify global efforts to combat it.

“Important discussions at the UN take place in a 'laboratory'” and often divorced from reality, and the chilling installation "Never again" at the UN is a painful testament to all that can and should be done to prevent violence against women in any culture and anywhere in the world,” the project said in a press release.

The exposition was organized by the Israeli delegation to the UN in cooperation with the delegations of Greece and Cyprus. It features clothes from victims of violence from these three countries, as well as clothes from victims from Trinidad and Tobago and the United States.

The opening of the exhibition was timed to coincide with the International Day to End Violence against Women.

Women's clothes are accompanied by the story of their life and death. The exhibit also features the clothing of Israeli social worker Michal Sela, who was stabbed to death by her husband in October 2019, as well as details about the Michal Sela Forum, which was set up after her murder to prevent domestic violence against women.
“This year in Israel, 15 women were killed by their families, and we will continue to fight until the complete eradication of violence against women.” Israel promotes the fight against violence against women both within the country and in international organizations. An international public effort is needed to educate against violence and for gender equality,” added the Israeli ambassador to the UN in Geneva.
