Last month, under the aegis of our grantee, Shutafot, hundreds of women across Israel took a coordinated “break” in the name of gender and economic justice.  During this 15-minute work stoppage, the women educated their fellow workers about the myriad forms of discrimination that Israeli women face in the workforce, and encouraged them to sign a petition calling for the end of this inequality.

Shutafot is a coalition comprised of six leading women’s organization’s in Israel (including several Hadassah Foundation grantees.) It is funded by The Jewish Women’s Collaborative International Fund (JWCIF) which is comprised of seventeen Jewish Women’s Foundations/Funds of North America and Israel, including the Hadassah Foundation.
