Jewish Women, Amplified

Welcome home, Jewish feminists! Jewish Women, Amplified is the blog of the Jewish Women’s Archive. Formerly known as Jewesses with Attitude, this online community 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 the smart and sassy 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.

Policy on posting comments

We welcome comments that are in the spirit of open conversation. Offensive or inappropriate comments will be deleted.

Want to write for us?

JWA welcomes a wide variety of voices, and we invite you to share your experiences, insights, opinions, and humor with our online community. While we are committed to celebrating the voices and contributions of Jewish women, we are not a space for self-promotion and will not include any posts that publicize individuals, projects, or products that do not relate to our mission.

All submissions should be no more than 800 words and be submitted as publication-ready as possible. We reserve the right to edit submitted posts for content, clarity, or length, and will do so in dialogue with the writer.

Please contact our blog editor to submit your work and / or request more information!


The opinions of those posting on this blog do not necessarily reflect the views of the Jewish Women’s Archive.
