Whoever does not change reality preserves it. Change can be as small a step as acknowledging the suffering of another or recognizing that your freedom is associated with allowing other people to be free with their sexuality, fears, and identities.

What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
The more I explore this, the more I find that gender inequality is a major cause of discrimination and injustice in every society in the world. If gender issues will raise in public awareness, then more people could feel liberated. What motivates me is to create better living conditions for people.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
I am a part of a forum that changed the procedure for dealing with sexual harassment at Ben-Gurion University. This was a major challenge, but we succeeded to generate policy change, legislation, and implementation of gender equality norms on campus.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
I am queer feminist DJ. I like to read and write poetry, to garden, and go to concerts around the world. I would say that my biggest hobby is to combine music and people.
