An Israeli Sex Therapist Considers a New View of Women’s Sexual Problems
While Israel is viewed as one of the most socially advanced countries of the world, it is a Jewish State, a part of the Middle East. Its various subcultures are extremely family oriented and, as a result, many subcul-
tures are more traditional and more patriarchal than those in the United States. A goal of the new feminist movement in the ’70s was to give women control over their bodies. Feminists were successful in achiev ing women’s freedom of choice, but the realities of Israeli politics were such that this right was maintained for less than a year.
