Great news for those of you who couldn't make it to "Good Girls, Nasty Women: Gender and American Jewish History" last month: a recording of the full conversation with Lynn Povich, Bonnie S. Anderson, and Rebecca Traister is now available for viewing online.

On March 28, 2017, Jewish Book Council and Jewish Women's Archive hosted a conversation with feminist writers Bonnie Anderson, Lynn Povich, and Rebecca Traister about the women behind history's great revolutions and contemporary movements—from the activists of America's Antebellum to the women's liberation stirrings of the midcentury to today's "nasty" women—as part of the third season of Jewish Book Council’s Unpacking the Book: Jewish Writers in Conversation series at The Jewish Museum, moderated by Bari Weiss of The Wall Street Journal.

You can find out more about the authors' books by clicking the book covers below—and be sure to download the BOOK CLUB GUIDE to all three titles to discuss these books with your reading group!
