ISRAEL - ISHA L'ISHA - POSITION PAPERS ON WOMEN'S ISSUES
Isha L’Isha, established in 1983, is the oldest grassroots feminist organization in Israel and one of the leading voices of women’s rights in the country. Isha L’Isha is based in Haifa and works primarily in the northern part ofIsrael. However, many of our projects focus on implementing system-wide solutions to issues pertaining to women's lives. As a result, Isha L'Isha has a national influence, reaching target audiences throughout the country. Our mission is to advance the status and rights of women and girls, and to promote peace, security and socio-economic justice from a feminist perspective through: education, research, dissemination of knowledge, advancing legislation, and public events. Our vision is a society where all women—regardless of religion, ethnicity or cultural background—enjoy equal rights in all fields, including economic, social, and political; a society without gender-based violence; a society in which women's voices are heard, and in which women have full and equal access to all resources.
