From Anger to Activism - The Story of 5050, A Partnership for Gender Equality in Israel with Yael Yechieli

Founded in the wake of Israel's fifth election cycle within four years, Project 5050 emerged from a profound frustration over the underrepresentation of women in Israeli politics. Spearheaded by Yael Yechieli, the initiative aims to achieve an equal 50/50 representation of women and men in all decision-making bodies, from the Knesset to local authorities and public NGOs. In this talk, Yael will share the journey of 5050 from its inception, highlighting its grassroots strategy, the transformative impact on municipal elections, and its vision for a more equitable political future.
