At the Borders, At the Margins: Feminist Theory, Jewish Studies, and Identity Politics

By Sara R. Horowitz

KTAV Publishing House, Inc., 1998

The author explores Jewish feminism, which in her mind is situated at the borders of Western male traditions, Jewish male traditions and women's traditions. Specifically, through analyzing Amanda Cross' novel A Trap for Fools, Horowitz articulates the "multiple exclusions" of Jewish feminisms, and additionally, "uneasily" pursues a connection between the works of Jewish women and other women of color, among a few similar topics covered.
