I remember a T-shirt that says it all: "Feminism, the radical notion that women are people." How could we NOT be feminists in this day and age?

How could I not with the examples of strong Jewish women in my family and heritage?

At the Jewish WomenÌ¢‰â‰ã¢s Archive, the word feminist comes up a lot. It probably won't come as much of a shock to you that the word feminist comes with significant baggage. Identifying as a feminist is not as straightforward to some as it is to others. We've collected responses on our blog - and encourage you to share your views here!
