Dear Sisterhood Readers

My name is Abigail Jones, and I am thrilled to introduce myself as the new Sisterhood editor. I have always enjoyed the thoughtful, provocative conversations that take place here, and I am eager to continue the great work that Gabrielle Birkner started three years ago.

I come to the Forward by way of The Daily, where I launched and ran the publication’s web and social media presence for nearly two years. Before that, I wrote. A lot. And often about women. I am the co-author of the New York Times nonfiction bestseller “Restless Virgins: Love, Sex, and Survival at a New England Prep School,” which follows the social and sexual lives of seven teenagers. I have also written extensively about girlhood, art, culture, aging and more.

Enough about me; I want to hear from you. What do you want to read about in the Sisterhood? What topics matter most to you? Feel free to email me at sisterhood@forward.com. You can also find me on Twitter at @abigaildj.

I look forward to hearing from you — and to continuing to make the Sisterhood the leading forum for Jewish women on the Internet.

Abigail Jones, Digital Features Editor
