The upcoming elections in Israel are heating up. Listen to Professor Naomi Chazan on the topic of “Do Women Really Count: Gender Issues in the Upcoming Israeli Elections.”
Naomi is a true insider and has previously held high-level positions such as Member of Knesset, Deputy Speaker of the House, and President of the New Israel Fund. She is currently the Dean of Government and Society at the Tel Aviv-Jaffa College.
These elections will have a profound impact on the ever-shifting Israeli society.
This year, while peace and security remain top priorities, many cultural developments have emerged as well. There was the debut of an ultra-orthodox women’s party, B’Zhutan, as well as the continued the fight for gender and religious equality at the Western Wall, behind the doors of the Knesset, and beyond.
