Rela Mazali is an author, independent scholar, and feminist peace activist from Israel. Active since 1980 in opposing Israel’s occupation, Mazali co-founded the New Profile movement to de-militarize Israeli society. Nominated by the 1000 Peacewomen project as a Nobel Peace Prize candidate, she served on the Jury of Conscience at the World Tribunal on Iraq (2005). Mazali's Maps of Women’s Goings & Stayings (2001) was reviewed as one of the best recent "narratives in space and time, by women about women for women." The Gun on the Kitchen Table (2009) is her groundbreaking study of Israel's "security guard" industry.
