Sheryl Sandberg, former COO of Facebook, urged women’s leaders to condemn the violence against Jewish women during an attack in October.
She criticized the silence of feminist organizations and emphasized the need to stand against sexual violence, regardless of political affiliations.

She also emphasized the intergenerational trauma of antisemitism and the need to combat hatred and discrimination.
“For a really long time, sexual violence was just a part of war, and we fought long and hard to get women listened to,” Sandberg said.
“And in this moment, politics are blinding us to something that is completely obvious—no matter what side of anything you are on,” Sandberg added.
“You need to be able to say that rape is unacceptable and sexual violence is unacceptable.”
“If we don’t stand against this, we lose our humanity.”
“Silence is complicity,” she added.
“I think they’re not going to be quiet anymore. I hope they’re not going to be quiet anymore.”
“I call on everyone to speak out,” Sandberg pressed.
“And if the world isn’t listening to us, we’re just gonna have to speak louder. In wartime situations, you know, there is so much that is unclear. But it is very clear now what happened, and I think everyone can see the evidence and hear the evidence.”
“You always thought it could never happen here,” she said.
“I think this is intergenerational trauma for Jews—the trauma of believing that antisemitism is still out there is still rampant, and we need to be against it.”
“We need to be against antisemitism. We need to be against Islamophobia. We need to be against racism,” she said.
“We can’t allow hatred to stand against anyone.”
