It is German-occupied Poland in 1942 and Jewish lives are at risk. Nazi soldiers order young boys to pull down their trousers to see if they are circumcised. Many are summarily shot or sent to the camps.
A remarkable mother takes an ingenious step. To avoid suspicion, she trains her teenage son to be a girl- his clothing, voice, hair, manners and more. Together, mother and son face incredible odds as their story sweeps backwards and forwards across occupied Europe.

For many years, Israel was perceived as an example for gender equality.
In her lecture, Professor Hacker will explore the impressive achievements of the struggle for gender equality in Israel, as well as the significant challenges yet to be overcome. From education in early childhood to care at old age, we will discuss gendered Israel to learn what more should be done to guarantee a just Israeli society, for women and men alike .
Prof. Hacker's research interests include the intersection of law, families and gender; globalization and families; and qualitative methods of research. She teaches Families Law, Families and Globalization, Feminist Jurisprudence, and Qualitative Methods, and has been a visiting professor at Cornell and Hong Kong University.
