Knesset forms subcommittee on the killing of women

The Knesset plenum voted on Wednesday to create a special committee on recent incidents of women being murdered by their husbands and partners.
After Meretz MK Tamar Zandberg proposed a parliamentary commission of inquiry on the phenomenon, a compromise was reached to instead form a subcommittee of the Knesset Committee on Advancing the Status of Women. "This was a small victory on the long path toward ending the shocking phenomenon of murdering women," Zandberg said.
