Jewish Women on the Way Up: The Challenge of Family, Career and Community

By Rela Geffen Monson

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1987

A few years ago the National Affairs Department and the Women's Issues Committee of the American Jewish Committee realized that they had little information about the experiences of successful Jewish business and professional women or their attitudes toward their Jewish identity, although such women constituted an important talent pool for the Jewish community. The present study, therefore, was undertaken to identify the characteristic ways these women adjust the conflicting demands of career, marriage, and family, and to determine if and to what extent their adjustments differ from those of other American career women. This study thus represents a pioneering attempt to discover how religion or ethnicity affects the significant life decisions of career women.
