New Jewish Feminism: Probing the Past, Forging the Future
Jewish Feminism: What Have We Accomplished? What Is Still to Be Done?
"When you are in the middle of the revolution you can't really plan the next steps ahead. But now we can. The book is intended to open up a dialogue between the early Jewish feminist pioneers and the young women shaping Judaism today…. Read it, use it, debate it, ponder it."
