About "Jewesses With Attitude"

"Jewesses With Attitude" is a place for Jewish women—and those who love us—to read about and sound-off on a wide variety of topics relating to our lives: from fiery feminism to food politics; Barbie to birth control; ritual to rebellion; art to activism; queerness to queens, and all else that moves us. We're not so concerned with who's dating who or the best place to buy face cream—especially since you can barely escape the house without getting bombarded with these details. But we love talking about gutsy Jewish chicks, sharing reactions to how we're being portrayed (the good, bad, and ugly), keeping abreast of Jewess-related events, resources, and media coverage, and taking a stand on issues we care about. So fire it up!
