"These women were abducted from a music festival by men from the Hamas on October 7. Men the UN just recently condemned for their sadistic sexual assaults. These women are subjected to horrors we can’t even imagine. Physical and sexual violence against women should not be tolerated, regardless of ethnicity, race or politics. Let the world know their names. Bring them home now!"
