Israeli Family and Community

Women's Time

Naveh, Hannah

This volume of essays by prominent researchers in Israeli history and society is the second of two interconnected volumes engaging with the concept of 'women's time'. It brings a feminist gaze to a wide variety of fascinating issues facing contemporary Israeli society, first by examining the private, 'natural' sphere of women's experience, and then by addressing the interaction between the private and the national spheres as reflected in the media and in religious and military discourses. 'Women's time' involves resistance to self-evident and often patriarchal truths and knowledge, and, by creating a model for the investigation of other obliterated narratives, serves the well-being of all, in Israel and beyond.
