The report examines Israeli policy regarding the six point Strategic Objectives as set out in the Beijing Platform for Action, and as such, touches upon women and the violent conflict and the occupation. Both the Beijing Platform for Action and the UN Security Council Resolution #1325 serve as a framework, an opportunity and a stepping stone, for writing this report. Our aims, first and foremost, are to raise awareness in Israel, in order to advance Israeli policy and to achieve gender equality and the protection of human rights and the rights of women in Israel,5 and in the Israeli OT. In addition, we seek to catalyze both the drafting and enforcement of new and of existing laws.
