Women/Pioneers

The women pioneers who came here a century ago wanted to build a new world and create a new woman, just as independent as men.

A few dozen of these women established Ein Harod. Writing about themselves and their world, they described their fight for equality and protested against how they were silenced. They struggled against the constraints of the traditional world they came from and the way men interpreted the world that they created.

They lived passionately and experienced many painful failures. In the end, they abandoned their struggle as women to focus on achieving the dream that they shared with men–the dream of creating a new nation. Women/Pioneers tells the story of their turbulent lives through the journals they wrote, which provide a new perspective on archival materials from that time.
