From Our Body Ourselves website we learn:
Alice Rothchild is a Boston ob-gyn who has been active in the women’s movement since the early 1970s, when she worked on the first “Our Bodies, Ourselves” and joined her first consciousness raising group.Weiss provides two videos and a report by Rothchild on her widespread efforts to demolish the myths about Israel that many Jews have which are based on their experience in Nazi Germany and their subsequent hopes and dreams for Israel, and the indoctrination in these myths by other Zionists and Jewish sympathizers.
She also became involved in the health care reform movement and is a longtime member of Physicians for a National Health Program. She currently is focused on the Israel/Palestine conflict and co-organizes health and human rights delegations to Israel/Palestine through American Jews for a Just Peace. She is also active in Jewish Voice for Peace Boston.
The other night I went to Hunter College to hear Alice Rothchild read from her new book, On the Brink: Israel and Palestine on the eve of the 2014 Gaza Invasion. The room was jammed with students and faculty, and Rothchild, a doctor and activist, was engaging, lively, warm, and genuine– the most you could ask from someone describing what she’d seen and seeking to change people’s minds back home.
