An Anatomy of Feminist Resistance: Rebel in the Wilderness

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The book explores the story of two women living in remote town Mitzpe Ramon, in the Negev Desert in south Israel. These women lived in poverty and worked under oppressive conditions for all their lives until one day they began to resist. Standing for the rights of working women and mothers, they led protests and strikes that shook the entire country for weeks.
In An Anatomy of Feminist Resistance: Rebel in the Wilderness, Dahan Kalev’s innovative perspective examines both the public and private spheres of these woman’s lives and reveals the existence of a third sphere in which women are able to find their voices. This study deciphers what causes women to accept conditions of oppression, under what circumstances will women begin to resist, and what are the political transformations rebellious women undergo while fighting oppression.
