New York, NY – In commemoration of International Women’s Day, the Foundation for Women and Democracy (KADEM) organized an interactive installation in Times Square, the heart of New York City, to raise awareness about the ongoing Israeli campaign in Gaza.

The event, titled “International Civil Support for Palestinian Women,” took place within the framework of KADEM’s 8th of March activities in New York. Through the interactive installation, KADEM brought Israel’s ongoing military campaign and the brave resistance of Palestinian women to the forefront of the global agenda, highlighting it on Times Square, the Crossroads of the World.

KADEM, which organized a series of programs at the United Nations in March coinciding with International Women’s Day, held a press conference and event in Times Square, New York, with a large participation. The press conference in the square was delivered by KADEM Chairwoman Doç. Dr. Saliha Okur Gümrükçüoğlu.

In the event, which consisted of an installation and a press conference, scarves in the colors of the Palestinian flag hung on poles symbolized the women massacred in Gaza. The Palestinian flag, made with traditional Palestinian tatreez embroidery on the poles where the scarves were tied, emphasized the resistance of Palestinian women. As the scarves tied to the poles were removed, the Palestinian flag embroidered with tatreez emerged. Thus, with the participation of conscientious Americans, the message “We Stand with Palestinian Women” was given from Times Square.

The press conference was attended by a large number of conscientious people living in New York, as well as tourists visiting Times Square, Orthodox Jews known for their stance against Israeli massacres, Neturei Karta Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, and Turkish NGO representatives and politicians in New York for the UN Commission on the Status of Women meetings.
