Thank you, The Australian Jewish News, for following up on your investigation “which uncovered alarming experiences of gender inequality and harassment in Jewish organisations”. This important article highlighted our work in the Gender Equality space – in particular our Gender Equality Pledge and the #MakeSpaceForHer campaign.

The article included information on our future plans. “The next phase will see a database of accomplished Jewish women who can serve as speakers for events, chairs for committees and sit on boards to lead other organisations, be offered to the community”.

“No longer will the answer be, we wanted a woman but we couldn’t find one,” enthused CEO Alexandra P. Silver.

“We are not here to shame anyone … We are here to engage, educate and inspire men and women to speak up for the women of our great community, the mothers, the daughters, sisters and wives.”
