A groundbreaking history of how Jewish women maintained their identity and influenced social activism as they wrote themselves into American history. What does it mean to be a Jewish woman in America? In a gripping historical narrative, Pamela S. Nadell weaves together the stories of a diverse group of extraordinary people. The twin threads binding these women together, she argues, are a strong sense of self and a resolute commitment to making the world a better place. Nadell recounts how Jewish women have been at the forefront of causes for centuries, fighting for suffrage, trade unions, civil rights, and feminism, and hoisting banners for Jewish rights around the world.

PROFESSOR PAMELA S. NADELL holds the Patrick Clendenen Chair in Women’s and Gender History at American University, where she directs the Jewish Studies Program. A member of the founding historians’ team for Philadelphia’s National Museum of American Jewish History, she is the immediate past president of the Association for Jewish Studies. Her books include Women Who Would Be Rabbis: A History of Women’s Ordination, 1889-1985, and America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today.
