Gender Equity in Israel Today: A Panel Discussion
Hosted By: National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW)
In the 2000-2001 academic year, National Council of Jewish Women gave an endowment that established the Women and Gender Studies Program at Tel Aviv University. Twenty years later, the program has educated and nurtured students to become agents of social change in Israel. Join NCJW and a panel of distinguished guests from Israel and the US as we celebrate 20 years of our partnership with Tel Aviv University and explore gender equity in Israel today.
This groundbreaking program — the first bachelor degree-granting program of its kind in the Middle East — uses an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and research through over one hundred courses from the faculties of Law, Humanities, Art, and the Social Sciences. The program stresses critical analysis of the role of women and other minorities in institutions of all kinds, public and private.
Speakers include: NCJW President Dana Gershon, Head of Women and Gender Studies at Tel Aviv University Professor Daphna Hacker, Knesset Member Merav Michaeli, Director of Arab Community program at Yad Hanadiv Foundation Dr. Safa Abu-Rabia, and Haredi social activist Estee Rieder-Indursky, and former NCJW president, Florida State Senator Nan Rich.
