This volume brings together, for the first time, the voices of feminist theorists, public policy administrators, philosophers, sociologists, art critics, lawyers, and political and human rights activists on the topic of Jewish feminism in Israel. Essays range from broad discussions of Israeli feminism and women and religion in Israel to more specific examinations of gender (in)equality on the kibbutz, Women in Black and other peace movements, and domestic violence and its link to Israeli culture. By addressing such a wide variety of issues, this volume highlights the complex ways in which the interplay of religion, culture, political processes, and the state impacts the lives of Israeli women in contemporary society. This theme enhances the volume's timeliness in the face of the current Intifadah in the Occupied Territories and the response to it by Israeli security forces. Collectively, the essays in Jewish Feminism in Israel present a view of Israeli Jewish feminism within its specific social and political context. Its particular strength lies in the multiple ways it addresses women's experiences in Israeli society.
