One of the founders of Ms. magazine and a leading feminist, Letty Cottin Pogrebin began to question Judaism at 15, when she first experienced its sexual inequality. It wasn't until nearly 20 years later that she began to reconsider her decision and return to her roots. Deborah, Golda, and Me is about Letty Pogrebin's journey; it's about her alienation of feminism, and her struggle to reconcile these two identities.
