A Woman within Zionism. The Path of Myriam Schach (1867-1956)

Abstract : Women have a hard time of it going down in History independently of men. Myriam Schach's career is a striking case in point. Her singular career in the Jewish nationalist movement notwithstanding, she has been deemed worthy of no more than a few passing remarks in works on Zionism. She is likewise all but absent from gender history, despite her lifelong commitment to gaining proper recognition for women's role in society. The reason is that Schach did not conform to any of the stereotypes of her day, even if she is a figure who sheds light on the career of many other Jewish women who were her contemporaries.
