WITASWAN Founder Jan Lisa Huttner & Chicago SWAN Day Coordinator Lisa Schoenberger (in green) celebrate our 3/28th success at a performance of Regina Taylor’s wonderful new play Magnolia (Goodman Theatre/April 1st).
Jan Lisa Huttner is a Brooklyn-based arts critic & feminist activist. She is the creative force behind the SWAN Movement—Support Women Artists Now—which has just begun its third phase as International SWANs® (aka iSWANs).
In the Jewish world, Jan is best known as the author of two books on Fiddler on the Roof—Tevye’s Daughters and Diamond Fiddler—both of which flow from a strongly feminist POV. She also served as both story consultant and “talking head” on the award-winning documentary Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles.
