Feminist Discourse in Women's Yiddish Press
Oct 12 2009


WORKMEN'S CIRCLE/DR. EMANUEL PATT VISITING PROFESSORSHIP LECTURE • MAX WEINREICH CENTER

Dr. Joanna Lisek - University of Wrocław

Based on women's magazines in Yiddish, Lisek addresses the direction of Jewish feminism's evolution. She presents:

• how feminist postulates are connected with questions of Jewish identity
• how the model image of a modern Jewish woman is presented
• how traditional women's roles are presented (mother, wife, housewife)
• whether and how a feminist discourse affects a language structure of the periodicals
