Ballots, Babies, and Banners of Peace (American Jewish Women's Activism 1890-1940) (Book)
Title: Ballots, Babies, and Banners of Peace (American Jewish Women's Activism 1890-1940)
Author: Melissa R. Klapper
Abstract: Jennie Franklin Purvin symbolizes Jewish women throughout the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries who developed a distinctive activist identity that drew on both their gender and their religious or ethnic identities. American Jewish women who wanted to be both good Jews and good women found themselves negotiating sometimes competing, sometimes complementary demands, and they daily made complex choices as their under-standings of their American, Jewish, and female identities fluctuated.
