    In an earlier time when Jews lived in Galut, there were communties composed of different 'styles" of worship, albeit Halachic, but with different formats. As Jews were in those days, as now, they were used to their "nuschao't" and minhagim to the point that "the only way to sing Kol Nidre" was their way, for openers. However, none of these communities had the means to build their own synagogues. They came to the decision that they operate out of one building, and pray in different sancturaries. It worked! Today, we have the Kotel. So . . . one section is for men, another for women that prefer not to pray with men, and the third for "egalitarian", men and women together, or women , or . . . essentially non-Halachic. Is it democratic? I don't know, but this is how Jews solved the issue in the past by created separate spaces for the differing ways of prayer. That is to say, I regret that the WoW started out with politics, when , one hoped they had spiritual concerns in mind. Over time, it became a "struggle",for the control of the Kotel when it ought to have been a "search" for a solution to provide a place to pray.
