'It is so obvious that to treat people equally is the right thing to do', wrote Gertrude Weil (1879-1971). In this biography of Weil, Leonard Rogoff tells the story of a modest southern Jewish woman who, while famously private, fought publicly and passionately for the progressive causes of her age.
