"Gender and Access to Justice in the Hebrew Bible" with Justice Daphne Barak-Erez

January 15, 2020 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm
Building 460, 4th floor, Terrace Room (426)

Aaron-Roland Endowed Lecture

This lecture will address the role of women in the justice systems of the Hebrew bible, by reference to a story of one judge, the stories of several women who managed to appear as parties to trials, and other stories of women whose cases led to litigation but who themselves were not directly involved in it. Through these narratives, the lecture will assess the importance of access to justice and analyze strategies to overcome barriers on the way to justice.
