Despite popular claims to the contrary, Israel’s feminist movement is not foreign based but a reflection of the country’s vibrant civil society. It has drawn on feminist theory, including that which developed within the Middle East, especially since the late 1960’s. In order to avoid being coopted by national interests, Israeli feminists have engaged in grassroots activities, often with substantial success. However, inter-ethnic tensions have led the movement to fracture, as anticipated by recent feminist theorists.
