Good Girls and Nasty Women: Gender in American Jewish History

Rebecca Traister with All the Single Ladies

JWA co-sponsors this exciting event, part of the Jewish Book Council’s series Unpacking the Book. If you’re disappointed that Amazon’s Good Girls Revolt was cancelled after the first season, come hear award-winning journalist Lynn Povich, the author of the memoir upon which the show was based, in conversation with women’s historian Bonnie S. Anderson and journalist Rebecca Traister, author of All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation. Discover the Jewish women behind history’s great revolutions and contemporary movements, from the activists of America’s Antebellum, to the women’s liberation stirrings of the mid-century, to today’s “nasty” women.

Advance registration is required. The event is free, but space is limited. Early arrival is recommended. In addition to the program, attendance includes refreshments and a book sale and signing. More information and registration here.

JWA is a sponsor of this program.
