And the winner is... Women of Valor!

Leah Wolff-Pellingra is the winner of our contest to rename the History Makers series with her suggestion, "Women of Valor." As it happens, the series was originally titled Women of Valor when it was first introduced in 1997. JWA changed the name to "History Makers" in an effort to improve transparency and better characterize the women in the series in 2008. Inspired by Leah's suggestion, the Jewish Women’s Archive is returning the series to its roots and restoring the project’s original title.

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

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

Her Hat Was In The Ring: New site shares stories of women in politics before 1920

Kristen Gwinn, Wendy Chmielewski, and Jill Norgren, students of women's history, had a goal: To explore whether women ran for elective office in substantial numbers before ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920. Thanks to their work, we now know THEY DID. The fruits of their research are now available in a database on a new, free website: www.herhatwasinthering.org.

Inspiration for the New Year from #jwapedia

Last week, JWA asked: Who do you choose to inspire and guide you, your community, and the world, this New Year?

#jwapedia: Who inspires you?

The second round of #jwapedia, JWA's campaign to tweet its Encyclopedia of Jewish women's history, is underway!
