Political Activism: The Fight for Equal Rights For Women
In August of 1970, tens of thousands of marchers on New York’s Fifth Avenue demanded equal rights for women. In this film clip, historian Joyce Antler and author and founding editor of Ms. magazine Letty Cottin Pogrebin, remember the movement’s heyday and how Jewish American women spearheaded the feminist cause. Rabbi David Silber, Rabbi Mordechai Swiatycki, Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, and Rabbi Laura Geller offer perspectives on the role of women in traditional Judaism.
