Jewesses with Attitude


Barbara Glickstein, a loyal reader of JWA's This Week in History feature, also happens to have a weekly program on public health on WBAI in NYC. Last week, she decided to do a piece on one of her personal heroes, Lillian Wald, to commemorate Wald's March 10 birthday and Women's History Month. She interviewed me about Wald's amazing life and contributions.

You can listen to it here. (I'm about 3/4 of the way through.)

Thank you, Barbara! And thank you, Lillian Wald, without whom there would be no public health nurses, no Henry Street Settlement House, no school nurses, no school lunches, no NAACP, no Federal Children's Bureau... and the list goes on.
