As more and more women are being recognized around the world politically beyond just their beauty, we couldn't help but recall our list of 47 Sinfully Sexy Jewish Men on TV. It didn't seem fair to leave the men without their competition.
Since it’s about more than just brains and beauty, this list takes into consideration women of the Jewish faith who exude confidence, strength and own their power.
In celebration of the spotlight finally shining on amazing Jewish women, here are some of the most badass TV babes of the bunch.
As Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz on "The Big Bang Theory," fellow Jersey girl Melissa Rauch juggles being married to Howard (Simon Helberg) with her job as a microbiologist, all while handling first-time motherhood like a (lady) BOSS.
Zosia appeared on "Mad Men," United States of Tara," and "Parenthood," before scoring a leading role on the HBO series, "Girls." As fast-talking Jewess, Shoshanna Shapiro, we never tired of hearing every word that quickly came flying out of her mouth!
Sara might not be a conventional beauty, but her stock as a badass is through the roof. Not only is she twice nominated for a Primetime Emmy for her role as Darlene Conner on the sitcom "Roseanne," she also kills us as the adorably dorky Leslie Winkle on “The Big Bang Theory." And that's not all Sara's slain. She'also a co-host and the CREATOR of the daytime talk show, “The Talk.” Come on Y'all -- Gilbert's got GAME.
Once Dr. Cuddy on the medical drama, “House," Edelstein recently helped independent ladies find their way as Abby McCarthy on "The Girlfriend's Guide To Divorce." Nowadays Lisa's back where she belongs in official doctor mode as Dr. Blaize on "The Good Doctor." and we think it's a very good move.
Jane played Mandy Milkovich on Showtime's "Shameless" and in 2011, landed her first lead role on the sitcom "Suburgatory." Levy has since strayed from comedy to prove just how frighteningly talented she is on Hulu's psychological thriller, "Castle Rock."
If you were alive in the 90s, you likely remember Mayim as the young star of "Blossom." Since then, Bialik's back on TV as Amy Farrah Fowler on "The Big Bang Theory," coupled up with hubby Sheldon (Jim Parsons) as the female half of the smartest newlyweds on television.
As the neuroscientist to his physicist, Mayim's supersmart character isn't exactly a stretch -- because Bialik's a neuroscientist in real life, she doesn't just play one on TV.
