7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

At the beginning of January 2023, days after the new government was sworn in, the new Minister of Justice in Israel gave a statement on the evening news introducing his plan for a "judicial reform." This plan immediately incited the public in Israel, starting a huge protest movement that has kept on going. Our conversation will focus on 1) what is this government that introduced the proposed reform, and 2) its implications for Israel as a democratic state, in particular for women's rights.
