Professor Marilyn Safir and ASUH in the News

The University of Haifa’s Professor Marilyn Safir has returned to Israel after a lengthy ASUH speaking tour in the U.S. Her impact on American audiences, however, is now stronger than ever. Her travels were documented in this article, which recently appeared in the influential blog, Israel21c.

P1000024Professor Safir, currently the Director of Project Kidma, is considered the “mother” of Israel’s feminist movement and the pioneer who established Israel’s first women’s studies program. She spoke all over the U.S. and media outlets were quick to report on her latest findings. The spirit with which she presented her data was insipiring to an American audience perhaps unfamiliar with the role women play in contemporary Israeli society.

A full recap of Professor Safir’s American visit is available in this story by Israel21c. We invite you to read and continue supporting Professor Safir and Project Kidma.
