Orna Gadish (born 1972) is an award-winning published writer and artist. Gadish was born in Israel to a World War Two holocaust survivor mother, a linguist and translator who fled antisemitism and immigrated to Israel in 1971, and an aeronautics engineer father, who was a Prisoner of Zion persecuted in Moscow, former USSR, in 1970 for his pro-Israeli political activity, where such an activity was banned.
Raised in Tel-Aviv, largely in a secular, multi-lingual and cosmopolitan cultural environment, Gadish graduated Cum Laude from the Tel Aviv University and Summa Cum Laude from the New Jersey institute of Technology in USA with a master's degree in information technologies and communications. In 2009 Gadish was distinguished for her excellence in academics and research and won several awards for her writing after publishing her first woman empowerment book "Don't Say I Do! Why Women Should Stay Single" (New Horizon Press) in 2012.
Following an international book tour in 2013 Gadish, a computer professional in the tech industry, was encouraged to enhance her speaking and creative career as an avid feminist and women's empowerment mentor. In April 2016 Gadish released her bestselling "Beasts of Prey: The Hard Truth about Men." The provocative book delves into the basics of men's cheating habits and their sexual, social, and cultural monopoly in the world. The book exposes the stereotypes that lurk beneath the surface of male manipulated societies and their cultural taboos. In November 2016 Gadish released "The Power of the Blonde: Cracking Down on Men's Control" – a sequel to "Beasts of Prey," which continues the journey into the mindset of men and their sexual, societal, and cultural domination in the world following history of relationships, female sexuality, and women's liberation.
In January 2017 Gadish released "Postmodernism: Doubling Down on Change" – a liberal treatise on Postmodernism as a cultural philosophic movement.
In July 2017 Gadish released "Cyber Terror: How It Happens and What We Can Do." The book covers the intricacies of terrorism, cyber terrorism, cyber crime, hacking, intelligence and political espionage in the first quarter of the 21st century. Observing the close link between physical acts of terrorism and cyber terrorism, following the massive flow of migrants and refugees, mainly from Syria and Iraq after 2015 – Gadish criticizes the somewhat lax attitude of our western society toward terror and cyber terror crimes. Gadish links terrorism to cyber terrorism, and sheds light on modern technologies, methods of cyber war, and other means used by masterminds of terror and cyber terror in their ongoing battle against western society. Gadish speaks five languages and resides in Tel Aviv.
