Podcasts for Women's History Month!

Happy Women's History Month! This may come as a shock, but at the Jewish Women's Archive, every month -- correction: every minute of every month -- is Women's History Month. Still, there's no reason why we shouldn't do something special on cue with the Gregorian calendar, right? Of course.

Throughout this very special month, and in keeping with the tradition of our monthly podcast, JWA is launching a series of thematic podcast features of Jewish women recalling some of the "ah-ha!" moments that catalyzed their social activism, political leadership, or their work as religious innovators.

Check out our first feature, Jewish Women and Social Activism. Listen to women like Bernice Stern recall a moment when she took a stand to condemn racial prejudice against African-American soldiers serving in World War II. It was this moment that shaped much of her career in advocating for minority rights.

We hope you'll be inspired by these Jewish social activists' voices and stories! Stay tuned for more Women's History Month podcast features over the next few weeks.
