Our Movement is Growing
Last weekend, Zionesses at Women's Marches around the country hit the pavement as proud Zionists and proud feminists. We showed up to affirm our support for progressive causes and the election of progressive and women candidates who will change our cities, states, and country to end discrimination and injustice.
As our movement continues to rapidly grow, we welcome all progressive Zionists to join us in the pursuit of a more loving, more open, and more inclusive America.
To stay abreast of developments in your region and organize with your fellow Zionesses, we recommend joining regional Facebook groups here. If a group does not currently exist for your region, please let us know and we will create one. We will work with leaders in different cities to activate local Zionesses in communities nationwide.
We could not be more excited to launch the Zioness platform (below), as we work together to advance social justice and civil rights.
With love and solidarity,
Our movement has grown to include thousands, many of whom proudly wore their Zionist identity at Women's Marches across the country.

What do we stand for as Zionesses?
As progressives who support the Jewish right to self-determination, we want to highlight issues where we can focus our advocacy and activism.
Ending discrimination and injustice: We will work to end racism, misogyny, and LBGTQ+ phobia. We aim to dismantle institutionalized racism in our government and our society; to implement national policies that ensure equal treatment for people of all ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations in public and private institutions; and to amplify the voices of our community members who face this type of discrimination.
Providing a home and platform of support for Jews and Zionists in progressive circles: We are acting to stop the spread of anti-Semitism and the demonization of Jews, Zionism, and Zionists on both the right and the left. We encourage and embolden Jews and Zionists to who have always cared deeply in social justice movements to reactive our community, to promote understanding of Judaism and Zionism within progressive circles, and to call out anti-Semitism wherever and whenever it appears.
