‘Housewives to the Entire Kibbutz’

Your Vox Tablet preview

Print Email

On Monday’s Vox Tablet podcast, Sara Ivry talks to filmmaker Toby Perl Freilich about her documentary-in-progress, which examines the 100-year evolution of the kibbutz movement. Through interviews with several generations of kibbutzniks, Perl Freilich digs around for the truth under all the myths. In some cases, the institution comes off looking pretty good; less so, according to one kibbutznik born-and-raised, when it came to the role of women, who were supposed to have been liberated from oppressive gender roles.

My experience was not at all like this, I have picked every fruit possible, planted potatoes and peanuts, also washed pots in the kitchen. We had women working in the Refet, with the sheep too. The founding matriachs had earned the priviledge of working indoors, in clean environments but young women did not necessarily do that.
