Event - Women's Struggle for Equality in Israel


November 16, 2022

Update: This program is now on Zoom only

Please join us for a conversation with Professor Yifat Bitton, one of the leading socio-legal feminists in Israel today. Professor Bitton will discuss the civil laws and Israeli Supreme Court cases that have aspired to reduce gender discrimination in Israeli society and offer some reflections on the challenges that lay ahead, in the wake of the election of a far-right-wing government likely to exert its power over the legal system by weakening protections against gender discrimination to appease the orthodox community.


This program is sponsored by the Israel Committee.
