5th Anniversary of Rape Crisis Center

Over 100 guests, including medical personnel and representatives of the police, government and various organizations, recently joined in celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Tel Aviv Rape Crisis Center.

The center received praise from MK Shulamit Aloni for its efforts to amend the law concerning the need for corroborating evidence in rape cases. She noted that Israel is one of the few countries in which a man can be punished for raping his wife. Dr. Nitza Shapira-Libai, Advisor to the Prime Minister on the Status of Women, called the center “a corner of warmth and caring in a progressively alienated society.”
