On the Logic of Feminism and the Implications of African American Feminist Thought for Israeli Mizrahi Feminism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Mizrakhi feminists are all those Israeli women who make sense of their lives via two different narratives concurrently: the Mizrakhi narrative and the Israeli feminist narrative. The Mizrakhi narrative tells the story of those Jews who arrived in Israel, during the first decade of its existence, from Arab and Muslim countries. They arrived in a country where the majority of Jews then living there were of Eastern European decent – i.e., Ashkenazi – and who were, for the most part, secular in outlook, and who were imbued with the vision of creating a “new Jew” who would be worthy of living in the new modern state of Israel.
