9:00 AM - 10:00 AMZoom Videoconference

A Webinar Presented by Anat Hoffman of the Israel Religious Action Center

In recent years, Israel has been dealing with demands for more modesty in the public sphere, and to adjust to religious standards. This has resulted in incidents of gender discrimination, such as:

  • Segregation between men and women on public transportation;
  • Exclusion of women from public ceremonies and events;
  • Discrimination of girls wishing to have a Bat Mitzvah at the Western Wall;
  • Silencing of women singers on religious radio and army ceremonies;
  • The exclusion of women ’for God's sake’ has become a litmus test for the infiltration of ultra-Orthodox norms into state definitions of religious requirements in the public sphere.

This webinar presents an overview of landmark victories over gender segregation and exclusion and will look at current challenges in this delicate area.

Advance registration is required; space is limited. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
