Feminism & Zionism: Exploring Recent Tensions
During an exciting moment when the feminism movement is burgeoning, we're seeing increased hostility toward Zionism. As Zionists, how can we lift up Zionism and Israel in feminist spaces? How can we lift up feminism in Zionist spaces? How should we decide when to build bridges or fight back? How can we navigate intersectionality? Hadassah's Defining Zionism series presents five Jewish women who actively engage with these issues every day. Watch as they reflect on their own experiences and share advice for feminists, Zionists, and all of us looking to better understand the interplay between our multiple identities.
