Forward Staffer is Named to Jewcy 100

Not to toot our own horn or anything, but our staffers are a pretty awesome. And turns out, others agree. Yesterday, Jewcy named Forward web editor and Sisterhood blog founder, Gabrielle Birkner, as part of the Big Jewcy: “A list of 100 people that we think deserve to be recognized, like The Forward 50, Time 100, or the New Yorker 20 under 40, but with a special Jewcy twist,” says the website.

Joining writers, DJs, musicians, photographers, comedians and other innovative thinkers in the Jewish world, Birkner (Gabi to us), was named to the list for being “one of the few women already writing for Jewish audiences that has made it a priority to make room for other female Jewish voices…” Since spring 2006, Birkner has hosted a lively and provocative debate on issues important to women in the States, Israel and around the globe.

Thanks for noticing, Jewcy. We couldn’t agree more.
