Author: Rivka Cohen, Naima Hirsch, Sara Rozner Lawrence, Sarah J. Ricklan (Jesus 2017), and Rebecca Zimilover, editors

Publisher: Ben Yehuda Press

The book is an anthology featuring 32 first-person narratives, exploring a wide range of themes relating to Jewish feminism. Through this book, we aim to amplify observant Jewish women’s voices in a way that they haven't been amplified before, subverting the community’s taboo against open discussion of female sexuality and related topics. Themes relating to the #MeToo movement and sexual assault emerge prominently throughout the book.
