Rottman Lecture: Ballots, Babies, and Banners of Peace: American Jewish Women’s Activism with Melissa Klapper, PhD.

March 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for an inspiring event at Rogers Memorial Chapel on Broadway Street in New Orleans, LA, USA.
This talk will explore the social and political activism of American Jewish women from the 1890s through World War II, focusing on three mass women’s movements of the day: suffrage, birth control, and peace. No history of first wave feminism is complete without understanding the outsize impact of Jewish women on these movements and the powerful effect of their activism on contemporary American life.
