The Jewish Story Season 5
Episode 3: Feminism and Judaism
The feminist movement and Jewish American life came together in the 1960s and 70s – each influencing the other. In this episode we touch on Betty Friedan’s Feminine Mystique, the religious activism of women like Sally Priesand and the Ezrat Nashim organization. We will also explore how feminism and antisemitism intersect, from Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s Womens Bible to the 1975 United Nations World Conference on Women in Mexico City which Betty Friedan, and fellow attendee Letty Cottin Pogrebin, founding editor of Ms. Magazine, called a turning point for many things to come.
