10 Women to Watch in 5773
“I try to write parts for women that are as complicated and interesting as women actually are,” wrote the late Nora Ephron. The admired writer and director could have been describing the women we honor this fall as Women to Watch in 5773.
Gifted, focused and fearless, these are women to be reckoned with: They have produced successful TV series and asked tough questions of business leaders; spurred the continued growth of iconic brands and founded savvy startups. Refusing to be defeated by the taunts of bullies or the trauma of 9/11, they have conceived organizations dedicated to building a better world. Committed to Jewish life, they have created a synagogue admired for its innovative and welcoming programs, and provided passionate volunteer leadership that has touched lives from Russia to Israel to Washington, D.C.

The 10 Women to Watch for 5772 face an ever-changing world not with fear, but with a dynamism that has enabled them to discover new paths and revolutionize their respective fields.
“The universe is made of stories, not atoms,” wrote the Jewish poet and activist Muriel Rukeyser. The stories of this year’s 10 remarkable Women to Watch offer manifold proof of Rukeyser’s words.
Since 1998, we've been honoring inspiring Women to Watch.
