The Impact of the Women's Movement on the Jewish Family

By Gladys Rosen

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1994

The author argues that the women's movement and the coinciding change in how women view their roles in the community, will have a crucial impact on family size, the effectiveness of the family as a socializer of children, and the policies of government and of communal agencies that provide programs and support mechanisms for families. In order to deal with these changing roles, the author suggests that the Jewish community be more inventive and supportive in the development of ways in which to help parents. The author asserts that there is a desperate need for universal Jewish day care for preschoolers and expanded opportunities for day school education, which would enable mothers to work while offering enriched Jewish education to their children.
