Israel: Conflict, occupation and patriarchy: Women carry the burden
This report deals with the impact of violence against women in the Occupied Territories in the context of conflict: violence committed by the Israeli state or its agents; the collapse of the rule of law within the Occupied Territories leading to a lack of implementation of existing laws; and the worsening effects of existing discrimination in both law and practice. Not all forms of harm suffered by women in a conflict necessarily fall under the definition of violence against women or constitute unlawful acts under international human rights or humanitarian law. The report concludes with Amnesty's recommendations to the Israeli and Palestinian Authorities.
