Introducing A New Film (and Educational Resource): "Jewish Girl Power"
INTRODUCING “JEWISH GIRL POWER” - A powerful 13-minute film about what it is like growing up Jewish and female at the beginning of the 21st century. In this film, five 14-year-old girls from Toronto talk candidly, and often humourously, about their lives, including their experiences of antisemitism and sexism, and their thoughts on intermarriage. This riveting film, directed and produced by Dr. Nora Gold (as part of her longitudinal research on Jewish girls) is now available online free of charge. To view JEWISH GIRL POWER, just go to Dr. Gold’s website at noragold.com, scroll down to where it says JEWISH GIRL POWER, and click on the picture of the girls.
Feel free also to forward this email to friends or colleagues whom you think might be interested. JEWISH GIRL POWER makes for fascinating viewing for individuals, but it is also a great discussion-starter in groups and classrooms. Use this short film as a wonderful educational resource with your students, or with any group interested in antisemitism, sexism, racism, oppression, girls, Jewish identity, or adolescent development.
