Jewish Sports Women

Director Shuli Eshel in Jewish Women in American Sport investigates Jewish women’s struggle to find their way into American sport. The opening question posed by narrator Caryn Bark — “There is no such thing as Jewish women in American sport, or is there?” — sets the direction as it questions their enduring invisibility and reveals Eshel’s avowed aim of shattering stereotypes through the narration of key moments of this progressive breakthrough. This first contention is illustrated by still pictures of contemporary Jewish American female athletes from a varied range of disciplines.
