Writer E.M.Broner Passed Away

Lilly Rivlin announced right now the death of E.M.Broner, a Jewish feminist who explored in her books (both fiction and non-fiction) the double marginalization of being Jewish and female. Ms. Broner was intensely concerned with Jewish spirituality, and with carving out a place for women in a faith tradition that had long seemed not to want them.
