LFI vice-chair Sharon Hodgson MP

At today’s Women and Equalities oral questions session, LFI vice-chair Sharon Hodgson MP asked the Secretary of State about the UN’s slow response to the sexual violence used against Israeli women and girls by Hamas in the 7 October attacks.

She asked: “Will the UK use its seat on the UN Human Rights Council to raise the use of gender-based violence on 7 October, and to secure a clear condemnation from its members of the rape, murder and torture perpetrated against women by Hamas on 7 October?”
