So excited to be going to LImmud UK as part of the UJIA delegation! I'll be speaking about a bunch of different topics, including:
* "A revolution of dolphins": Orthodox women transforming Jewish life * Educating religious girls: A joint session with Dr Beverly Gribetz * Women and theocracy in Israel: How religion and state threaten women's lives in Israel * "Like a thousand paper cuts": Non-contact sexual abuse
AND i'll be on a panel called "JNEB" fashioned by Keith Kahn-Harris where criticism is welcome and celebrated. My talk is called: The sh*t that Jewish women go through... or more mildly, "Why it's tough being a Jewish woman". I'm really looking forward to that one...
