This New Documentary Asks: Can Secular Israel Tolerate Haredi Feminists?

A new documentary film, Women of Valor, showcases the struggle of Haredi women as they aim for inclusion in Israeli politics and in other prominent segments of society. It presents Esty Shushan in her work with Estee Rieder Indursky in the organization they founded, Nivcharot, as the two of them overcome personal slander, attacks and more in order to help Haredi women find their voice in Israel.

Having aired on Israeli television the film is now on the festival circuit and garnering acclaim. Read more here.
