Listening to Jewish Women in a West Bank Settlement

In the newspapers, on TV, and across other forms of news media we hear about ideological Jewish settlers in the West Bank, and we see images of fanatically religious individuals grasping their hold on land – but are fundamentalist ideologies the major motivation behind their actions and decisions? In this session, we will encounter stories, thoughts, and attitudes expressed by women from a specific established settlement. We will discuss what is revealed when we attend to these women’s voices and what factors are underlying their choices to live in this contested place, and we will consider some of the complexity lying beneath this conflicted landscape.
