WAKE UP 💪
Tonight: Protest for more female representation in the government
Despite years of progress towards gender equality, a mere 14% of the coalition’s 65 Members of Knesset (MKs) are women, with even fewer holding senior government positions. This is a major setback for women’s rights and issues. Join us tonight at Habima as we raise our voices and demand change. Women from all political backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, and communities are invited to participate, as are men who support our cause. More details on the Secret Tel Aviv website.
