What Else She Said

I feel like there is no way to separate anything I do from my Jewishness. I feel very Jewish. Any time I'm loud and vocal, I feel Jewish. I can't say that I've always felt proud of that -- I think I've bought into the sort of unspoken anti-Semitism that's around in our culture which is that it's better to be a quieter female, a more passive female, and that's why I've appreciated so much some of the loud, Jewish, vocal women that have been present throughout history, from Esther to Bella Abzug.
