NextGen Israeli Feminists
The Force for Change Mission heard from the next generation of Israeli feminists today, including those who represent the Arab Israeli and Russian immigrant community.

They stressed the need for Israeli feminists to address the needs of a wider range of women (e.g. non-Askenazi women, those of lesser means, and those who live beyond Israel's largest cities.)
