America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today

with Professor Pamela Nadell, Patrick Clendenen Chair in Women’s and Gender History, American University

Join us as we discuss what does it mean to be a Jewish woman in America.  Weaving together stories from the colonial era’s matriarch, Grace Nathan, and her great-granddaughter, poet Emma Lazarus, to union organizer, Bessie Hillman, and the eminent Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Professor Nadell shows two threads binding the nation’s Jewish women: a strong sense of self and a commitment to making the world a better place.
