WoMen Fight AntiSemitism welcomes all genders and races into our united front to fight for equality and against AntiSemitism. We draw inspiration from Bella Abzug, founder of the National Women’s Political Caucus, and Betty Friedan who unearthed that American women were being systematically tranquilized not liberated.
By Jordana Horn “Nadell examines how World War II and AntiSemitism spurred on American Zionist activism (which could easily be the subject of its own book). From Betty Friedan to Sonia Pressman, Bella Abzug and Gerda Lerner, Jewish women had an outsize role in the feminist struggle. As the Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg famously quipped: ‘What is the difference between a bookkeeper in the garment district and a Supreme Court justice? One generation.’ And, I would add, Jewish women realizing the power of their voices, intellects and ambitions.”
By KAREN LEHRMAN BLOCH “Until, that is, I started to study our indigenous connection to the land of Israel and realized that there was now a plethora of genetic research showing that, lo and behold, just like our Sephardic and Mizrahic brothers and sisters, the DNA of Ashkenazim shows an irrefutable connection to the Levant — meaning we’re not white.”

The IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism stands on decades of research and development by experts, historians and survivors of the Holocaust, which was not an act of genocide against many groups but against Jews, Roma, Homosexuals and the Disabled. The U.S. State Department adopted the IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism in 2010 along with 32 nation governments across Europe, Macron's government, South Carolina and it's advancing with bipartisan support through the Florida House as we write. (It passed!) This is the actual IHRA Definition of AntiSemitism.
