Na'am participated in a Knesset round table and position paper on the needs of minority women in emergencies. This led to the opening of an additional shelter for Arab women.
Due to an effort led by Na'am and others, a loophole allowing polygamy was struck down in a law passed by the Knesset.
Na'am supports women's higher education by helping them obtain scholarships and assistance through their studies. Recently, our Women's Rights coordinator recieved her degree, and not long after, her daughter finished her nursing degree and became licensed. We count this as one of our most signigicant sucesses.
With the help of the European Union, and three other women's rights organizations, we met with 42 groups of young women over three years to talk about early marriage and polygamy
