Simone Ellin’s “Focus: Feminism” (March 1) was a superb lead-in for Women’s History Month. She dealt with many issues: feminism, Jewish feminism, a brief history of the Jewish feminist movement and interviews with women in the forefront of the movement, both local and national. I read and then re-read the article to get the full import of the women she interviewed. Ms. Ellin’s “In My View” focused on her own personal views and concerns, concerns that I too share.
Kudos to Simone Ellin for covering a complex subject and making your readers aware of the viewpoints of Jewish women “across the religious spectrum.”
