Whether the explosion in Jewish women's classical text studies leads to growing activism or to greater conservatism is of critical concern. Panelists first address the question of how girls and women feel about confronting difficult texts. Secondly, as teachers and educators, what aspects of today's situation feel empowering or de-legitimizing to them, and thirdly, what are the impacts of the different types of post-high school programs for girls? In the Q&A session following, participants discuss the impact of intervening social factors in the classroom, the role of male and female educators, and more.
