Show Summary Details


A review of the book, Gender Equality and American Jews by Moshe Hartman and Harriet Hartman is presented. The book is an important contribution to the literature on the educational attainment, labor force behavior, and occupational distribution of American Jewish men and women. The main focus of the book is the extent of gender equality among Jews in these three areas, as compared with that of the overall white American population. The analysis uses data from the 1990 National Jewish Population Survey (NJPS) for the former and governmental statistics for the latter.

Keywords: American Jews; educational attainment; labor force; employment; gender equality
