Israeli magazine profiles female victims of sexual assault on Intl Womens’ Day

Israel’s leading women’s magazine, Laisha, has published a cover story to mark International Women’s Day, featuring the stories of 22 women who said they have been raped or sexually assaulted.

Inspired by New York Magazine’s July 2015 cover featuring 35 women in chronological order of their alleged sexual assault by comedian Bill Cosby, Israel’s Laisha (Hebrew for: ‘For the Woman’) magazine featured 22 women wearing black clothes, seated in rows of chairs and one empty chair, symbolizing those who have chosen to remain silent.
