The National Women’s Studies Association members voted, by a huge majority, to join the worldwide movement against Israel at its annual conference, making it the fifth American academic association to do so since April 2013.

Delegates of NSWA passed the measure by a 653-86 vote, and their full membership of 12,000 will vote on it in the next two months. The movement to boycott began with the Association for Asian American Studies, and since that time the American Studies Association, the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, the American Anthropological Association, and now the NWSA have joined in.
