Have Jews been so underrepresented?


Felicity Jones (not Jewish) played Ruth Bader Ginsberg in On the Basis of Sex.
Rachel Brosnahan (not Jewish) plays the Marvellous Mrs Maisel.
In Mrs. America, Betty Friedan, Bella Abzug and Gloria Steinem were played by Tracy Ullman, Margo Martindale and Rose Byrne—none of whom are Jewish.
Kathryn Hahn (not Jewish) has been cast as Joan Rivers.

Make no mistake, I admire a lot of these performers. But this looks suspiciously like a trend. As anti-Semitism is on the rise, when does it stop being acceptable to water down Jewish representation in TV and film?
