The Forum for Gender, Law and Policy


The Forum for Gender, Law, and Policy, headed by Prof. Noya Rimalt and Prof. Shulamit Almog, was established in 2014 as part of the Faculty of Law at the University of Haifa. The Forum is the first academic platform of its kind in Israel for the promotion of gender-related research, teaching, and public policy initiatives and discussions. The Forum’s mission is to develop a public agenda to reduce gender inequality while focusing on law as the major tool for promoting women’s empowerment and gender equality in Israel.

In addition to its advocacy for gender-related legal and policy reforms, the Forum encourages deliberations of gender justice issues with various stakeholders and partners including government officials, legislators, academic scholars, and feminist NGOs in Israel and around the world.
