Feedback form is now closed.

This session will describe the various ways women and girls are disappearing from publications,magazines-even shul directories. From Bet Shemesh where local circulars are women free, some bus lines have women in the back, and even the word 'woman' is crossed out or dropped from publication, to the US where couples are honored with only the man given the award. We will discuss the extent of the practice, its dangers, and the concerns that go along with it. We will explore practical ways to push back against this new and extreme practice and where it has a chance to make change and where it does not.
