Women’s Rights

Despite significant advances made in recent years to ensure women’s equality in Israeli society, gender discrimination still exists in almost every aspect of life: employment, health, and more. Women from minority groups encounter multiple forms of discrimination, and in most cases they face greater obstacles in realizing their basic rights than men. This is only compounded by their lack of representation in public decision-making bodies, ultimately leaving legislation concerning women in the hands of the male majority.

As a part of the effort to ensure equality for all residents and citizens of Israeli, throughout Israeli society, ACRI works to protect women’s rights by promoting the elimination of underage marriage; improving access to women’s healthcare; countering discrimination against women in the religious and family court systems; and advocating for equal representation of women in public bodies and in the media.
