It's about time. When you're discussing the rights of women among the ultra-orthodox, opinions will have a huge range.

I wish the women success in putting the orthodox in their place. Gender discrimination should never be allowed and the women are right to kick them where it hurts.

If they are allowed to go unchecked they will be putting women in Berkas and beating them to keep them in their place.

There's far too little attention paid to the role of Jewish and Christian fundamentalists in Middle East politics.

With very few exceptions, all religions are paternal institutions, that treat women as second-class citizens.
AIN'T information wonderful? TV and the internet are responsible for teaching and informing.
Thand goodness, the days of keeping female persons bare-foot and pregnant are on the way out.
