Itach - Women Lawyers for Social Justice

Itach - Women Lawyers for Social Justice is a non-profit organization that aims to create social change by using the law to address the needs and rights of women from the social, economic and geographic periphery of Israel. Founded in the summer of 2001 by a group of leading feminist legal professionals in Israel, Itach aspires to increase access to the law, legal knowledge and tools among the population of disenfranchised women, specifically in the fields of employment rights, welfare benefits, public housing and violence against women. We believe that as lawyers, we have taken on the professional responsibility to create access to justice for every citizen. Itach's three branches are located in Tel Aviv, Beersheva and Haifa, and each branch focuses on different needs in its region.

Goals
Itach's mission is to create social change among the population of poor and low-income women by creatively addressing the issues of legal rights, empowerment and social justice. We aim to protect the most basic rights of women from the lowest socio-economic levels in Israeli society and to influence the legal and social discourse to take into account their unique experiences and needs. We strive to increase access to legal information, to empower women to understand and realize their rights and to use their strength to become change agents for issues that concern them. We aspire to raise awareness in the legal profession and among the general public about the real-life struggles of poor and low-income women and to influence decision and policy-making to take into account this population's unique needs and situation.
