The Legal Context of Contemporary Feminist Struggle
Workshop Series on Gender, Law, and Society in the Muslim World
The Julis-Rabinowitz Program on Jewish and Israeli Law and the Program on Law and Society in the Muslim World organized a discussion of gender-based violence and feminist struggles for gender justice and equality in Israel-Palestine on Monday, February 25, 2019 at HLS campus. Professors Tally Kritzman-Amir and Sarah Ilhmoud examined recent trends in gender-based violence in Israel-Palestine and the various state policies and responses, especially in relation to vulnerable communities of Palestinians and African refugees. The discussion covered the legal struggles of the feminist movement in Israel in the context of recent state legislative and policy initiatives that often contribute to the increased vulnerability of Palestinian and African women.
This workshop was Co-sponsored by the Gender Violence Program, Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic, Progressive Jewish Alliance, HLS Advocates for Human Rights, and Religious Literacy Project at the Harvard Divinity School.
Tally Amir is a Senior Lecturer of immigration and international law at the College of Law and Business, Israel. Sarah Ihmoud is a Postdoctoral Associate in Anthropology and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Boston University.
