Jewish women were undeniably instrumental in shaping the women’s liberation movement of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, yet historians and participants themselves have overlooked their contributions as Jews. This has left many vital questions unasked and unanswered—until now. Delving into archival sources and conducting extensive interviews with these fierce pioneers, Joyce Antler’s Jewish Radical Feminism has at last broken the silence about the confluence of feminism and Jewish identity.

The AJHS is home to key collections of Jewish American women’s movements and organizations and feminist leaders working in the US and abroad, including the National Council of Jewish Women – the NY Section, Hadassah – the Women’s Zionist Organization, The Bnai Brith Women, the Federation of Jewish Women’s Organizations, and more.
