Video Interview with Rebecca Traister

Single women have been around forever. Unable to find suitable partners, unwilling to marry unsuitable ones, or simply uninterested in the idea of partnering, these women were often considered social cast-offs and economic drains on society. Passed over and unobserved, they have been stereotyped as passive participants who lived on the sidelines of history. New York Times' bestselling author, Rebecca Traister's latest book works to change this flawed narrative.

Rebecca Solnit

Rebecca Solnit’s experiences of sexism became the inspiration for both her 2014 book Men Explain Things to Me and the popular term “mansplaining.”

Sarah Hurwitz

As speechwriter for Michelle Obama, Sarah Hurwitz helped craft the First Lady’s message throughout the Obamas’ time in the White House.

Masha Gessen

Years of covering Putin’s regime in Russia made journalist Maria Alexandrovna “Masha” Gessen uniquely qualified to point out uncomfortable parallels between Putin’s leadership style and that of President Trump.

Margo Glantz

Margo Glantz fused the Yiddish literature of her parents, the Mexican culture of her homeland, and the French traditions of her academic training to create experimental new works of literature.

Luisa Futoransky

Luisa Futoransky’s adventures around the world have made her writing vivid.

Henriette Furth

Despite facing ongoing anti-Semitism, journalist Henriette Katzenstein Fürth remained a passionate and vocal German patriot throughout her life.

Marjorie Ingall

Marjorie Ingall’s 2016 parenting guide Mamaleh Knows Best offers a blend of empathy, ethics, and practical advice that readers have come to expect from her “East Village Mamaleh” column in the Forward.

Rebecca Traister

In her book All the Single Ladies, Rebecca Traister investigates why so many women are choosing to remain single, and the impact single women can have on society.

Elaine Feinstein

Elaine Feinstein’s poetry and fiction was profoundly shaped by both her own Jewish heritage and her passion for the work of modern Russian poets including Marina Tsvetayeva.
