Ella Gera, Israeli Women’s Rights Advocate, economist and attorney, came to Chicago in late February to discuss the myths and realities of women’s rights in Israel. The former executive director of the Israel Women’s Network (IWN), the leading feminist organization in Israel advocating for women’s rights  and leading social change for women, still serves IWN as a member of the board and chair of the Friends of the IWN. She is also  a member of the Women’s Budget Forum and was a founding member of the Organization for the Advancement of Women’s Leadership in Israel. In an interview with Stefanie Pervos of JUF News, Gera talks about the misconceptions about women’s role in Israeli society, the challenges they face, and advancements being made through her work with IWN.
