Even as global societies trend toward democracy and freedom of expression, broad areas still exist where religious rule translates into human rights abuses directed against women.

For almost 10 years, the Center for Women’s Justice has been a prominent force in promoting impactful and lasting civil responses to these types of injustices in Israel.  Our success is rooted in our effective legal advocacy, creative litigation, far-reaching public awareness campaigns, and collaborative activity with like-minded partners.    

Above all, we believe that change begins with knowledge.

That’s why our Online Resource Center is dedicated to bringing you the information you need to better understand the issues, and the resources that can help you meet complex challenges.
