Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta and Brandeis University recently concluded a community study that uncovered critical new details regarding challenges faced by Jewish women and girls – challenges that have no doubt been exacerbated by the tumultuous events of the last few months. One of the most significant findings was the ongoing, inter-generational struggle women and girls face in their quest to “do it all” and maintain a façade of perfection throughout their lives. Join us for a conversation that will delve further into the dangers of this anxiety-inducing phenomenon and uncover ways in which we can begin to enact systemic changes that will address this detrimental trend.
