Gender Role Attitudes of Traditional Arab Women and Haredi Jewish Women in Israel: A Comparison

Despite not typically interacting with each other in Israeli society, Haredim (ultra-orthodox Jews) and traditional Arab women seem to share common qualities, such as covering up most of their bodies for modesty reasons, and living in relatively closed societies. In this episode of Interactions, Gilan Miller-Gertz and Nour Abu-Ghosh interview women from both groups to discover similarities and differences. “Some of our assumptions about the attitudes and lifestyles of Haredi and traditional Arab women were revealed to be unfounded,” the authors reflect. “They turned out to see themselves as strong women who are leading their families and building their societies, and displayed agency in believing that they are making the choice to pursue their respective life-missions.”
