Dr. Susan Weiss: Five areas in which the override clause should terrify women

8th episode of ToI’s new podcast miniseries ‘Israel’s Judiciary: Reform or Ruin?’ takes a nuanced journey into looming legislation that could alter country’s checks and balances

Is Israeli democracy in danger? A proposed High Court override clause has many concerned about a possible tyranny of the majority. Join us as a diverse set of legal experts discuss with ToI editors what’s currently at stake.

In this eighth episode of our limited series podcast, Amanda Borschel-Dan speaks with Dr. Susan Weiss about how the proposed legislation may affect women’s rights.

Weiss is the founder and director of the Center for Women’s Justice, an NGO defending women’s rights whenever they are violated by the state in the name of religion. We speak about five main areas in which implementation of the override clause “should terrify women.”

Ahead of a live-streamed Times of Israel event on judicial reform that took place in Jerusalem’s Israel Democracy Institute on December 15, Weiss wrote an op-ed exploring these themes for The Times of Israel explaining her viewpoints.
