Everyday Traffic

By Bonna Devora Haberman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2008

The author contends that and we all participate in objectifying, degrading and consuming women through socially accepted means as media images and marketing, particularly in Israel where trafficking women into prostitution thrives. She asserts that every culture is responsible to intervene in the cycle of gender-based oppression. In examining our own culture, she illustrates how Jewish textual sources dehumanize women in marriage and urges us to sanctify one another where we now profane.
