The contribution of mother-daughter relations to the employment experiences of marginalized young women in the south of Israel, under the supervision of Prof. Orly Benjamin.
I am a social-worker – sociologist, I wrote my MSW thesis on feminist social work in Israel under the supervision of Prof. Michal Krumer-Nevo at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. My professional-academic life is focused on the intersection between several fields: Young women, social marginalization, labor market participation, feminist social work. During 2016 I was co-founder alongside Dr. Michal Komem of the Rotem Center at the Sapir Academic College which operates programs and conducts research with and for marginalized adolescent girls and young women in Israel. My research has been supported by the Research Foundation in the National Insurance Institute, Naamat and the Center for Research on Jewish Women at Bar-Ilan University.
