Interview on the introduction to Mill's Subjection of Women, La'Isha

Abstract

Daphna Levi, a prominent journalist in Israel's biggest women magazine, interviewed me about the Hebrew translation of John Stewart Mill's Subjection of Women, and the introduction I co-wrote with my partner, Dr. Zohar Kohavi. I emphasized Mill's radical and far sighted vision, and speculated about what issues would seem bothersome to him in today's Israel. Once such issue is the monopoly of religious law in marriage and divorce in Israel. The lack of civil marriage leaves women in great disadvantage in Rabbinical and Shariaa courts.
