Rename JWA's "History Makers" exhibit, win swag!

That's right folks, it's a contest.

We need a new name for History Makers, one of our most favorite exhibits. Okay, who am I kidding; they're all our favorite exhibits. Regardless, we need your help.

The name needs to be short (1-3 words will do) and still sum up the accomplishments of these 16 trailblazing Jewish women:

Women of Valor women

If your suggestion is chosen, you’ll win a full set of the exhibit posters and a Making Trouble DVD. Haven't seen Making Trouble, JWA's award-winning film about six of the funniest Jewish women in comedy? Watch the trailer!

So tell us, what would you call these American Jewish Women who changed the world?


Good luck!
