That's according to The Wall Street Journal and NBC:

Opinion about the Middle East also split sharply along gender lines, with men expressing more strongly pro-Israel views than women, who were more inclined to an even-handed approach. In sizing up Israel's military action in Gaza, 54 percent of men believed it was justified, compared with only 34 percent of women. Asked about U.S. policy more generally, 58 percent of women — compared with 48 percent of men — favored an approach that treats Israel and the Palestinians equally. [The Wall Street Journal]

About 1,800 Palestinians have been killed thus far in Operation Protective Edge, many of them women and children. A cease-fire is currently in effect.
