Did the Oriental Jewish woman have a history of her own? What was her image in male consciousness? What is known about her contemporary experiences? These are just a few of the questions addressed by the articles in this volume.

The result is a work that explores many of the black holes in our knowledge of the Oriental Jewish woman, both past and present.
