#MeToo Panel and Performance from Alicia Svigals






Jewish Feminisms/American Visions will bring an array of pioneering and contemporary feminist activists to Ann Arbor to consider the role of Jewish identity in the framing and development of second wave American feminism. During this symposium, activists from the 1960s through today will explore the significance of Jewish identities in the development of the women's liberation movement and the impact of feminism on American Jewish culture, politics, and religion. In addition to conversations between veteran feminists and more recently-minted activists, the program will include a screening of the documentary Changing the World portraying the activist career of conference participant, Heather Booth, and a performance by violinist and klezmer music pioneer, Alicia Svigals.
