IWN

The Israel Women’s Network is a not-profit organization comprised of women who are united in their determination to improve the status of women in Israel, regardless of political affiliation, religious outlook or ethnic origin. Established in 1984, it was the first organization in Israel dedicated to promoting women’s rights and equality. Since its beginnings, it has scored many successes, including: initiating laws such as the Sexual Harassment Prevention Law of 1998, representing precedent-setting lawsuits fighting discrimination in the workplace; passage of an amendment to the Family Courts Law, thereby enabling Muslim and Christian women to settle matters of maintenance and custody in civil courts; efforts to help women who have been refused divorce [agunot]; helping victims of sex trafficking and more.

center for women's justice

Established in 2004, the Center for Women’s Justice (CWJ) is a recognized leader in the struggle to end injustices perpetrated against women in the name of religion. In Israel, where there are two government-funded court systems—civil and rabbinic—only rabbinic courts can decide matters concerning marriage and divorce. Our pioneering legal solutions address the problems that occur when policies and rulings of Israel’s rabbinic establishment violate the basic rights of women to equality and self-determination. Apply Now!

microfy

Microfy, a grassroots, volunteer-driven organization, works with women who are often overlooked: the residents of Tel Aviv’s southern neighborhoods, who live a world away from the city’s lucrative hi-tech scene. In addition to providing training to entrepreneurs, the women are enrolled in a business forum, which gives them on-going support as well as critical business contacts.

Microfy’s mission is to give women, refugees and asylum seekers the tools to sustain themselves and become economically independent. We support women, refugees and asylum seekers, an often forgotten and neglected group, in Israel through our microfinance loan program. We provide more than loans — every borrower goes through an intensive training and mentorship process. Apply Now!

pink pangea

Pink Pangea, the community for women who love to travel, is a fast-growing site where women share their travels and inspire others to see the world. As international travelers, we became frustrated by the lack of credible information about travel for women. Existing travel sites presented—at best—a paragraph that dealt with women’s concerns and others were filled with non-specific information. We know that the real travel experts are the people who have actually been there.

Since joining the Pink Pangea community, Pink Pangea writers have contributed to international publications and news programs, including The Guardian, CBS, Elite Daily, Go Overseas, FOOD & WINE, and Examiner.com, and have continued to see the world through Peace Corps, Fulbright Scholar Program, university studies, work, and of course, on their own. Apply Now!
