Did you know that while the vast majority of those who work and volunteer in the Jewish community are women, more often than not, those who hold the top jobs/roles are men? Try to remember famous Jewish men from throughout history and most of us won’t struggle to think of plenty but it’s a struggle to think of nearly as many famous Jewish women.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8 every year. For the second year running, the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS) are joining the celebration of women’s economic, political and social achievements by celebrating the amazing women in our own community.
The worldwide theme of International Women’s Day is #BeBoldForChange. At WUJS we’re adding our own hashtag to the campaign... #JustLikeHer so that we can highlight the women in our community who've already been bold and use there example to inspire others. We want people to recognise Jewish women contributions and achievements and the best way to do that is to get people speaking about them.
So how does it work?
