Jewesses Who’ve Rocked America Conference Online


by Rebecca Honig Friedman

jwa.jpg“When it comes to improving women’s lives, in many instances it is Jewish women who are changing America.” This idea is the basis for the current issue of the Barnard Center for Research on Women’s publication The Scholar & Feminist Online, which is really an online version of a conference, “Jewish Women Changing America: Cross-Generational Conversations,” held at Barnard a year and a half ago.
If you missed the conference, or want to refresh your memory, now you can read transcripts and watch video clips of the panel discussions, featuring brilliant Jewess intellectuals discussing the profound changes Jewesses historically have effected on American mainstream culture, politics, and Judaism itself. For the more visually-oriented amongst us, there are some cool slideshows up there, too, courtesy of the Jewish Women’s Archive.
The picture of the Chicago Women’s Liberation Rock Band above is our favorite.
Thanks to Danya Ruttenberg, a participant in the conference and Jewschool contributor, for the heads up on this one.
