Women in Black
“Women Resist Occupation and War”
Conference, Jerusalem, 2005
The International Conference
of Women in Black was held in Jerusalem on August 12-16, 2005. The experience
was a powerful one, and exceeded the expectations of the organizers – more women came, more women participated from
a distance, and the impact was profound and, we expect, long lasting.
Although I was an active
member of the Organizing Committee, the report on this website was written exclusively by me, and expresses my own views.
I have written it for posterity – to help the organizers of future conferences,
and to reflect upon an event that was profoundly significant in my life.
This conference marked
a milestone in the history of women’s peace organizing. I am proud to have
been associated with it.
