"America's Jewish Women": Pamela S. Nadell with Gal Beckerman

The artists, activists, workers, wives, and mothers who helped create Jewish American identity.

From the poets Grace Seixas Nathan and her great-granddaughter, Emma Lazarus, to labor organizer Bessie Hillman and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jewish women have been at the forefront of causes promoting suffrage, trade unions, civil rights, feminism, and Jewish rights around the world. Pamela S. Nadell, the Patrick Clendenen Chair in Women’s and Gender History and director of Jewish studies at American University, attributes the advances made by Jewish American women to their strong sense of self and a resolute commitment to making the world a better place. 

Nadell will be joined in conversation by Gal Beckerman, a writer and editor at The New York Times Book Review.
