Feminist Friend of Israel

Recently, the National Women’s Studies Association voted to endorse “the 2005 call by Palestinian civil society for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) of economic, military and cultural entities and projects sponsored by the state of Israel,” making it clear that in their opinion, true feminists should not support the State of Israel.

JOFA believes you can be both a proud feminist and friend of Israel. Where else do you find women who contribute so significantly to the armed forces? Where else do you find a country with women comprising over half the judicial system?

This Yom Ha’atzmaut stand up and be a #FeministFriendOfIsrael! Why are you a feminist and a friend of Israel?
