Synopsis: 

JOFA founding president, Blu Greenberg, discusses the ways in which women are increasingly populating leadership positions within the Orthodox community, such as day school principals, scholars-in-residence, and shul presidents. Greenberg asserts that Orthodox women who take on new public roles should find strength in linking their work to the rich tradition of previous generations of Orthodox women who, though their stories sometimes went untold and their leadership roles often lacked fancy titles, were also powerful agents for social change.
