Melissa Scholten-Gutierrez

Melissa Scholten-Gutierrez is a Jewish communal professional, social worker, educator, writer, and the proud co-author of Redefining Rebbetzin. With a mother and grandmother who exemplify what it means to be a strong Jewish woman, she was destined for life as an outspoken feminist. Her Jewess (with attitude) religious school principal helped to grow and channel that through the formative adolescent years and Melissa now embraces it by proving that orthodox-feminist is not an oxymoron.
