Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Based on an ethnographic research conducted over three years (2010–2012), this paper suggests new analytical concepts reflecting two types of temporal activism aimed at exercising the ethnic and gendered right to the city: daily activism and anecdotal activism. This analysis is based on a study of the activities of the feminist Mizrahi1 movement Achoti (Hebrew for my sister). The findings show that there are more than one way and more than one space to fulfill the feminist and Mizrahi right to the city. It also argues that activism as a means to fulfill the right to the city produces a “third space” that is both temporal and temporary, and can be identified in both types of temporal activism.
