Aviva Cantor is an advocate of feminism and egalitarianism in Judaism.

Aviva Cantor has promoted Jewish activism for over 30 years. She was a co-founder of the Jewish Liberation Project in New York and an editor of its Jewish Liberation Journal. In 1976, she co-founded Lilith, an “Independent, Jewish & Frankly Feminist” magazine. She regularly wrote for Lilith and Ms., and created Lilith’s anti-sexist, gender-inclusive Haggadah. In addition, Cantor has published The Jewish Woman.1900-1985: A Bibliography and Jewish Women/Jewish Men: the Legacy of Patriarchy in Jewish Life in 1995.
