Women of the Tribe

March is Jewish Women’s History Month. But really, shouldn’t every month be Jewish Women’s History Month? Every day of every week of every month there are innumerable accomplishments to celebrate.

That’s why the Jewish Women’s Archive developed This Week in History–a web feature that highlights the historical impact of Jewish women.

This week’s profiles include a Songwriter, a Madame, and the creator of a Great American Icon. Take this opportunity to learn more about the women of the tribe.
