Troublemaking is an Unpredictable Sport

 “When women talk about their accomplishments, it’s a signal to others to stop liking them,” said Rachel Sklar. “For men, success correlates with positive feelings. Women want to be well liked, they don’t want to rock the boat. We have to support our troublemakers.”

Making Trouble with JWA

Yesterday, the Jewish Women's Archive held its third annual Making Trouble/Making History Awards Luncheon. As a new member of the JWA staff, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Less than one week on the job, and I was packing my bags for a trip to New York City—ready to blog, tweet, photograph, and schmooze my way through the event. Not exactly the definition of “easing into things,” but I was ready to take the metaphorical bull by its metaphorical horns and dive right in.
