America's Jewish Women

America’s Jewish Women

Pamela Nadell, author of America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today, uncovers what it has meant to be a Jewish woman in America by weaving the stories of remarkable individuals–from colonial matron Grace Nathan and her great-granddaughter poet Emma Lazarus, to labor activist Bessie Hillman and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  Learn how they and scores of women maintained their Jewish identities as they wrote themselves into American history.

Pamela Nadell holds the Patrick Clendenen Chair in Women’s and Gender History and is the Director of the Jewish Studies Program at American University in Washington, D.C.
