American Jewish Women and Postwar Social Movements
Jewish Women and Postwar Social Movements, 1945-1982. The online journal Women and Social Movements in the U.S., 1600-2000 is launching a new initiative that asks how Jewish women's personal and historic experiences shaped the ways in which they participated in both Jewish communal affairs and in the larger American society. Examples of potential topics include: Jewish Women and Civil Rights, Jewish Women and Second Wave Feminism, Jewish Women and the Red Scare, Jewish Women and War, Jewish Women and the Feminine Mystique, Comparative projects between Jewish and non-Jewish women, Jewish Women's Clubs and/or Voluntary Organizations, Jewish Women and Religious Institutions, Jewish Women and Suburbia, Icons of American Jewish womanhood, Jewish Women and Zionism, Jewish Women and New Professions, Jewish Women and Education, Jewish Women and Lesbian Rights.
Shira Kohn and Rachel Kranson, both of New York University, and Kathleen A. Laughlin, Metropolitan State University, St. Paul, MN, will serve as editors for this initiative and will begin accepting proposals for document projects on this topic.
The initiative will build upon the website's current offerings, which include projects concerning Protestant women, Native American women, African-American women, and most recently Catholic women and second wave feminism.
We encourage document projects in the same format as those currently posted in the website. They should pose a question and organize documents that address the question. To begin the submission process, please send email to the editors for this initiative describing the project your are interested in developing. They will get back to you with further details on the submission process and the nature of the proposal you will need to prepare for the review process.
