The Jewish feminist movement began with Ezrat Nashim in 1971. Ezrat Nashim examined the role of women in participating in the public ritual of Jewish life. The second wave saw women rabbis in the Conservative movement, women in leadership positions in synagogue life, women's minyanim , etc. The third wave is the partnership minyanim (prayer groups), women rabbis in the Orthodox movement, etc.  A panel of leaders in each of these waves will share their personal experiences and challenges.
