What We're Reading: Ballots, Babies and Peace

This is why I love women's history - there is just always more to the story.  The Untold Story of Jewish Feminist Pioneers provides a Q&A with Historian Melissa R. Klapper who recently won a National Jewish Book Award for Ballots, Babies, and Banners of Peace: American Jewish Women’s Activism, 1890-1940.    Klapper's book discusses the birth control battles of the 1870s, the Jewish push for suffrage, and why peace was once considered a women's issue.
