Youth Aliyah members hang laundry at Kibbutz Rodges, ca. 1930

Women members of Youth Aliyah hang laundry at Kibbutz Rodges. Due to the nature of work on the kibbutz and the climate, women often wore shorts on the kibbutzim, like in this photo. It was also symbolic of their rebellion against the traditions of their homes in Europe. Source: The Archive of the Religious Kibbutz, from the PikiWiki website.
