Bat Sheva Marcus is on a mission to take the shame, pain, and stigma out of women’s sexual health regardless of their religious practices. As the founder of the Maze Women’s Center for Sexual Health, she is seeing a rise in financial, emotional, and physical stressors that exacerbate and challenge relationships.

Dr. Marcus will be in conversation with Rabbi Sherre Hirsch as they discuss how every woman deserves a happy and fulfilling sex life and how to achieve one, even in the most difficult of times.
