Many of the conditions which British feminists have identified as necessary for the full citizenship of women seem to have been met in Israel. Even Jewish women, however, remain disadvantaged in many ways. This paper analyses the causes of their disadvantage, showing that some are shared with other nations while others are specific to Israel.
