Join JWA for a lively discussion of the FX/Hulu miniseries on the battle for the Equal Rights Amendment that has put more Jewish feminists on screen at once than ever before.

Drawing on the insights of historians, cultural critics and activists of the time, we will explore feminism and the ERA then and now, Jewish women in the movement and representations of gender, race and ethnicity in “Mrs. America” and popular culture more broadly.

JWA CEO Judith Rosenbaum will be joined by Joyce Antler, Jen Deaderick, Samira Mehta and Letty Cottin Pogrebin, founding editor of Ms. Magazine.
