Congratulations to Us!

Forgive us if we take a moment to pat ourselves on the back. was just named by the Slingshot Guide as one of the 18 most inventive and pioneering Jewish organizations and projects impacting the lives of women and girls.

According to the evaluators: has created a relevant and innovative online community, bold on women’s issues, ‘tackling topics and themes that are rarely discussed in a public forum.’

And who are we to disagree. In the past year alone we have taken on miscarriage, infertility, postpartum depression, divorce, rape, abortion, loss of faith in God, and what to do when your son won’t stop saying the word “cock.”

We are proud of the work we’ve all done together in creating a strong, smart, supportive community of women where talk about serious issues is possible.
