    The Orthodox do not have the right to not be offended. It is outrageous that I cannot go to the Kotel with my husband and sons at my side. It is outrageous that I cannot wear tallit there. The Orthodox are the ones squashing my rights, the Orthodox are the ones telling me I am not a person that I am not worthy to be with my family. The Wall is the place for all Jews as you say... except apparently women. We're shunted to the side, treated as less. Despite the fact that many might be offended, no one is harmed by a woman praying in tallit or praying next to her husband and it should be allowed.
