    Interesting but a little textbook. I did enjoy the stories but wish they went into a bit more detail about some of the women?s lives instead of just throwing out names and very brief descriptions of how they helped move us toward modern Judaism and feminism. It?s a good overview. ...

    A review of the role of Jewish women in America's history, the earliest times are largely imagined ("To peer into their world we must use our imagination.") I prefer more factual nonfiction writing-- the rest of the book seemed thoroughly researched. The author also makes the controver...

    Very informative and a quick read. It appeared that Jewish women in the past were one big league of social workers. Then they became disproportionately connected with just about every liberal cause there was. But is this good? In between Ultra-Orthodoxy and unending support of left ...
