Jewesses with Attitude

About "Jewesses With Attitude"

“Jewesses With Attitude” is a forum for Jewish women (and those who love us) to reflect on a wide variety of topics that intrigue and impact us: from feminism to family, gender to Judaism, politics to pop culture, ritual to relationships, activism to art—and everything in between. We celebrate smart, sassy, and singular Jewish women who have changed the world, or simply have something to say. In this space, we start conversations, stimulate debate, and inspire each other to think and act boldly.

A project of the Jewish Women’s Archive

The Jewish Women’s Archive documents Jewish women’s stories, elevates their voices, and inspires them to be agents of change. Through its website,—the world’s largest source of information about Jewish women—and such activities as a fellowship for teen girls, blog, podcast, book club, and public programs, JWA works to ensure that Jewish women’s stories, voices, and accomplishments are included in the historical and contemporary narrative, and help bring about a more inclusive future.
