Your Tyra Banks article made me think about this classic Times article regarding the upswing in mikvah observance in the mid-‘70s. If you have a Times subscription, you can search for “mikvah” in their article database and come up with quite a collection of fascinating pieces, including an indignant letter to the editor from a late-70s feminist, highly offended that the Times would waste ink on a sexist medieval practice. Enjoy!
