The Jewish women behind all 100 years of the Equal Rights Amendment

The Jewish women behind all 100 years of the Equal Rights Amendment

Last week, Virginia made history with their vote to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment--first written almost 100 years ago--and finally make women constitutionally equal. This long struggle included some of the greatest activists and feminists this country has ever seen and, unsurprisingly, many of them are Jewish. Read all about them in my latest for [...]

I’m in print! Washington Jewish Week: Why is this Women’s March different from all the others?

I’m in print for the 1st time! This is my column for Washington Jewish Week about the Women‘s March. This is the first time being printed since my The Eagle days as a staff columnist so I’d like to formally thank Nickolaus Mack and Haley Samsel for pushing me (read: putting up with me). I’m also in the same issue as Abby Stein which is [...]

2nd Annual WERC Summit is in the books!

2nd Annual WERC Summit is in the books!

Over a year ago I submitted my first-ever proposal for a conference and was shocked that it was accepted. Today, I got to recreate the experience and present the workshop again. This year's Working to End Rape Culture Summit went brillantly. I had an incredibly attentive adience that asked thoughtful and engaging questions. We workshopped [...]

Why I’m Preparing for Yom Kippur By Protesting at the Supreme Court

Why I’m Preparing for Yom Kippur By Protesting at the Supreme Court

Today, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments on whether or not it is legal to fire people for being LGBTQ. In 2019. In America. This is the reality we live in, folks. Yet many, many straight people I've talked to in the last few days have no idea this is happening. So read my latest [...]

One year later: On Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Yom Kippur, and too many “sorrys”

One year after Dr. Ford testified to Congress, her story is still resonating with me. Especially just how much time she spent apologizing during her time. In light of Yom Kippur, a day of repentance and supplication, here's what excessive apologizing means to me. Read my latest on JWA: https://jwa.org/blog/one-year-later

Escorting at an Abortion Clinic is Praying with My Feet

Getting this up here late! But I am so proud to have my first ever piece up for Lilith Magazine (I've been a subscriber for almost four years!). This summer I spent a lot of time thinking about abortion and the reproductive freedom movement. I also became a trained clinic escort and have applied to [...]

RBG’s subtle and Jewish resistance explained

RBG’s subtle and Jewish resistance explained

I kind of can't believe this, but I wrote about RBG for the first time. No idea why it took so long! The other day, Justice Ginsburg once again reminded the world she's a force to be reckoned with. During an interview with NPR, she said: “There was a senator — I think it was [...]

Mikveh and water justice: the crossover of your dreams

Mikveh and water justice: the crossover of your dreams

My most recent piece for Jewish Women's Archive is live! I wrote about the unlikely connection between feminism, water conservation, and the mikveh. It's short and sweet but highlights the importance of remembering that Judaism cannot exist in a vacuum, unresponsive to the world around us. https://jwa.org/blog/mikveh-and-water-justice
