Throughout 2014, Mada’s Gender Studies Program acted as a coordinating member of the Palestinian Committee to Resist Killing Women, a coalition of 13 women’s advocacy NGOs that work to challenge femicide in Palestinian society. The GSP participated on this organization's research committee, which hosted several meetings at Mada and prepared a June 2014 conference held in Tira entitled “The Struggle Against Femicide: We Condemn.” Attendees at this conference considered the stories of women who were killed, the policy of welfare institutions toward femicide, the insufficient police response to the murder of women, youth opinions on femicide, the women’s movement and its representation of gender-based violence, and the effect of social changes on discourse about femicide.
