The women pioneers who came to Israel in the early 20th century wanted to build a new world and create a new woman in 1920s Palestine that was just as independent as men.
Screening earlier this year at Doc Aviv, Women/Pioneers is made by award-winning socio-political director Michal Aviad and documents the involvement women had in the creation of the famous Kibbutz* Ein Harod. These courageous women were new migrants from all over Europe fighting for equality and protesting against sexual discrimination. This is the story of their lives, their passionate pursuits and their painful failures. Eventually the women abandoned their struggle to focus on achieving the dream that they shared with men — the dream of creating a new nation.
