We draw inspiration from Bella Abzug, founder of the National Women’s Political Caucus, and Betty Friedan who unearthed that American women were being systematically tranquilized not liberated.

WoMen Fight AntiSemitism is pursuing New York State adopting an official definition and framework of Antisemitism. Part of our team is pursuing South Carolina adopting the official definition and framework of Antisemitism. The outbreak of AntiSemitic crimes in New York is unprecedented, dangerous and must be dealt with forcefully and immediately. Stay up to date here and by following WMFA on social media.

Have you heard about the Working Definition of AntiSemitism, otherwise known as the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Association) Definition of AntiSemitism?

Democrats: Pass the IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism

 

Sign the Petition to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Whip James Clyburn and Democratic Leadership!

 
 
 

To Democratic House Leadership:

We, the American people, are demanding passage of the IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism.

Self respecting American Jews do not recognize the 'Anti-Hate' Resolution passed by House Democrats. American Jews have supported the Democratic Party by 75% since 1968 and were essential in Democrats winning back the House. The issue is not standing against hate. The issue is standing against AntiSemitism. We refuse to be quiet and demand the House pass the IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism as crafted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance based on the Stockholm Declaration of 2000. The IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism stands on decades of research and development by experts, historians and survivors of the Holocaust, which was not an act of genocide against many groups but against Jews, Roma, Homosexuals and the Disabled. The U.S. State Department adopted the IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism in 2010 along with 32 nation governments across Europe, Macron's governmentSouth Carolina and it's advancing with bipartisan support through the Florida House as we write.

Your resolution is unacceptable. Your Anti-Hate resolution lacks research while expressing enormous disrespect to the many survivors and scholars of Nazi genocide who worked to craft the IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism.

We will continue to call out the increasing hypocrisy and bigotry the Democratic Party is growing synonymous with each day. Until you pass the IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism to draw a red line against AntiSemitic hate, there is no resolution worth recognizing. In that regard, the Democratic Party has taken no action.

This is the actual IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism.

Sincerely,

WoMen Fight AntiSemitism

WoMEN Fight AntiSemitism♀

WoMen Fight AntiSemitism is working toward New York State adopting a legal definition and framework of Antisemitism similar to the U.S. State Department as established by the IHRA as well as South Carolina adopting a legal definition and framework of Antisemitism. We are committed to raising awareness for the U.S. to ratify ERA and CEDAW, adopt federally standardized stalking laws and LGBTQ protections.

The United States has not ratified the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) and CEDAW (Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women) nor achieved gender parity in representation. Without true gender parity in representation, the passage of laws essential to achieving gender equality in the U.S. will continue to be blocked. WoMen Fight AntiSemitism was a proud sponsor of the #VAratifyERA campaign to pass the Equal Rights Amendment in Virginia, the 38th state required for full ratification granting equal rights to women in the U.S. Constitution.

WMFA is delighted that, after 17 long years, GENDA (Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act) and the outlawing of gender conversion therapy were passed and signed into law in January, 2019 in New York State, setting the precedent for all states and ultimately the federal government to follow suit.

Please stay in touch to learn about and support our efforts.

WoMen Fight AntiSemitism was a proud sponsor of the #VAratifyERA campaign to pass the Equal Rights Amendment in Virginia, the 38th state required for full ratification granting equal rights to women in the U.S. Constitution. WMFA visited the Virginia Senate in Richmond, VA to greet legislators on their first day returning to the 2019 General Assembly to vote on the Equal Rights Amendment. The Senate was so full, we had to watch from overflow rooms and then attended a fabulous party where we met all the lawmakers and activists working so hard to make Virginia the 38th and final state required to ratify the ERA in the U.S. Constitution. We met Senator Pat Spearman who is responsible for making Nevada the 36th State to pass the ERA, Delegate Jennifer Carrol Foy who is sponsoring the ERA bill in the Virginia House, Kati Hornung campaign coordinator of VARatifyERA and Eileen Davis of Women Matter, a major architect of the current resurgence of the ERA movement in the United States. We marched in the Women’s March Alliance Women’s March on NYC carrying banners generously loaned to WoMen Fight AntiSemitism by Eileen Davis with beautiful logos for our sponsors, VARatifyERA and AMWEC (American Muslim and Multifaith Women’s Empowerment Council).
