Foreword by Senator Dianne Feinstein
Half coffee table book, half encyclopedia, this book contains dozens of beautiful photographs and brief but potent and analytical biographical essays that can be read again and again. The selection of these women is an eclectic amalgam of known and unknown women who have made important contributions to life in North America. In addition to celebrated Jewish women like children's author Judy Blume and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg, the book is filled with women whose stories have been relatively unsung. They range from pioneer lawyer Felice Cohn to Planned Parenthood founder Bessie Moses.
Their stories are all different, the women are all distinct: some are pious, others hardly identifiable as Jewish, some are radicals, scientists, athletes, and artists. Regardless, each woman is truly an agent of social change. This collection not only honors exemplary Jewish women, but it also serves to encourage and inspire young Jewish women, fighting similar and disparate battles every day. With Strength and Splendor will make a wonderful gift for adult or teen bat mitzvahs, high school and college graduates, teachers, counselors, friends, and family.
