Women's Day at the Knesset to be Dedicated to Aloni


MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid), head of the Knesset Committee on the Advancement of Women, announced on Friday that International Women's Day will be dedicated this year to former MK Shulamit Aloni, who passed away Friday morning.

"Shulamit always challenged me. On stages, in panels, in debates that still reverberate dhe was always ready and came from a place of familiarity," said Lavie. "She fought and never gave up on the belief that all human beings were created in the image of G-d. International Women's Day we in the Knesset on March 4 will be dedicated to her memory."
