Women in Israel Race, Gender and Citizenship by Nahla Abdo Women in Israel provides a fresh, gendered analysis of citizenship in Israel. Working from a framework of Israel as a settler-colonial regime, this important, insightful book presents historical and contemporary comparative approaches to the lives and experiences of Ashkenazi, Mizrahi and Palestinian Arab women citizens. Nahla Abdo shows that no solution to the problems of the region can be found without changing existing racial and gender boundaries to citizenship. Co-sponsored by The Toronto Women's Bookstore who will be selling copies of the book to be autographed by Professor Abdo.
