The Public Council

The Public Council for the Advancement of Girls, Adolescents and Women in Sports has operated under Israeli Government Decision 3416 since 2005. The Council serves as an advisory body to the government, the Ministry of Culture and Sport, and the minister in charge, as to the promotion and development of women’s sports in Israel.
The Council works to promote policies supportive of women’s sports, including the development of Olympic sports and the formulation of recommendations to advance female leadership in women’s sports in Israel. The Council initiates multi-year action plans for the creation of a broad-based infrastructure for women’s sports activity and for the promotion of competitive sports. The Council also works to change public attitudes in Israel in all matters concerning women’s sport.
The Council membership is diverse, coming from professional sport, educational, and sports-values-driven backgrounds, to promote gender equality in Israel. The Council members contribute their time and experience toward the realization of the vision and goals that guided the Council’s formation, and they assist in various spheres in promoting women’s sports in Israel. Ms. Hanna Gertler was appointed first Chairperson of the Council. In May 2013, Ms. Michal Cafrey-Yardeni was appointed to replace Ms. Gertler as Chairperson.
