Abstract


Sandra McGee Deutsch has produced a significant contribution in Crossing Borders, Claiming a Nation: A History of Argentine Jewish Women, 1880-1955, a moving and beautiful book assessing how women pursued meaningful lives in difficult circumstances. This study deepens our understanding of women’s experiences and challenges future scholars to examine women in other groups for comparison. By exploring the many ways Jewish women engaged in communal, local, civic and national institutions, the author evocatively illustrates the multiple hurdles and opportunities these actors faced.
