From pressure to sit at the back of public buses to attacks on schoolgirls for dressing “immodestly”, an Orthodox woman requires tremendous strength and commitment to push back against efforts to marginalize women in Israel. Join NIFC and feminist pioneer Hannah Kehat, founder of Israel’s first Orthodox feminist organization, Kolech (‘her voice’). Kehat is a dynamic leader of the discourse in Israel around feminism and religious pressure on women.
