Outside of the Ninth Annual Conference on “Women, Law and Family in Israel” at the university’s Rackman Center for the Advancement of Women’s Status, the fathers gave out flyers and held up signs that explained their complaints: “A woman is worth no less and no more than a man” and “A man is worth no more and no less than a woman,” read some of the signs.
The real argument was that this conference is seen as biased and anti-father. The conference begins with closed-doors talks by what the fathers say are militant feminists, and only social workers will be in attendance. The feminists support the Tender Years Clause, which automatically awards mothers custody of children in the event of a divorce. The social workers in attendance, the protestors say, will be given only one side of the custody issue – one that supports the automatic custody award to the mother.
Israel is said to be the last country in the world that still enforces the Tender Years Clause.
