Best of the rest: Link Roundup

  • Don't miss the premiere of the HBO Documentary, “Gloria: In Her Own Words” on August 15th at 9PM EST. The Women's Media Center is celebrating this event with a video contest: describe your vision for the future of feminism in a 2 minute video.

  • Gloria Steinem also made headlines by calling for a boycott of NBC's The Playboy Club. Because she was a Playboy Bunny, remember? She is also featured in JWA's exhibit, Jewish Women and the Feminist Revolution.

  • A moving post on Jewschool describes the sadness of Tisha B'av as "spiritual tourism," reminding us that we each approach this day from a different perspective.

  • According to Lilith, women are not part of the generational schism that exists in the Jewish community.

  • Gloria Feldt interviews Rabbi Holly Cohn, the "Friday Night Lights" Rabbi who's community in Odessa, Texas, is the basis for the TV's show's fictional setting.

  • A new report from the Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce shows that women need a PhD to earn the same amount as a man with a BA. Lovely.

  • Chanel Dubofsky reviews Rabbi Jill Jacobs' Where Justice Dwells: A Hands On Guide to Doing Justice in Your Jewish Community.

  • Is Larry David a feminist? And if so, is he a feminist hero? The Sisterhood's Elissa Strauss thinks so.

  • On Tablet, three videos from a Columbia Journalism School project let children raised interfaith share their stories. As you might have guessed, the majority of comments dismiss the teens' autonomy to build their own interfaith identities.

Thanks for including the Larry David link...just goes to show that feminists come in all shapes and sizes and adds a lighter note to the discussion.
