America’s Jewish Women by Pamela Nadell

Pamela S. Nadell’s America’s Jewish Women | History from Colonial Times to Today weaves together the complex story of Jewish women in America — from colonial-era matriarch Grace Nathan, poet Emma Lazarus, to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Recounting how Jewish women have been at the forefront of social, economic, and political causes for centuries, Nadell shows them fighting for suffrage, labor unions, civil rights, feminism, and religious rights.
