Gender Studies Departments Twelve Times More Likely to Invite Pro-Israel Boycott BDS Speakers

Nov 4, 2017 by

AMCHA Initiative announced that in their recent study, they discovered that gender studies departments across the U.S. were more likely to invite anti-Israel, pro-Israel boycott-aligned speakers to their departments. The boycott-Israel movement is known as the BDS movement, or Boycott Divest and Sanction:

Gender Studies departments were 12 times more likely to sponsor anti-Israel BDS events if one or more faculty members supported BDS, the most of any field examined in a new study by the AMCHA Initiative, which fights antisemitism in higher education.

The more BDS supporters in a Gender Studies department, “the greater the likelihood of BDS-supporting speaker-events,” said the report, which detailed how BDS initiatives on college campuses create a culture of hostility toward Jewish students.
