Dr. Einat Wilf joins Daniel Seaman and Daniela Traub to discuss her view that the assault on the ideals of both movements should be combated.
Wilf says that Zionism is the source of Israel’s strength, and the attempt to vilify the term must be opposed. She discusses an op-ed she wrote this week, “Feminism and Zionism,” in which she says that both stem from the Enlightenment and both revolutionized the lives of their communities. She rejects the suggestion that these terms be dropped due to their modern-day negative connotations, on the grounds that doing so would constitute a betrayal of that which brought about the emancipation of Jews and women. listen now
