BOOK REVIEW


Tevye's Daughters: No Laughing Matter, by Jan Lisa Huttner (2014)
Conventional wisdom has it that Fiddler on the Roof is about Tevye, a beleaguered patriarch persecuted by his neighbors and "desperately clinging to Tradition." But in this surprising eBook, Jan Lisa Huttner turns the reader's focus away from Tevye and onto his daughters... for Huttner, the creators of Fiddler on the Roof were participants in a Great Conversation about women's rights conducted over a span of two thousand years from the original compilation of the Hebrew Bible right up to the present day... Whenwe skip over, trivialize, or otherwise ignore the female characters in Fiddler on the Roof, we not only denigrate half of the world's population, we also fail to appreciate the full power of a great work of art.
