    Here's where the TYRANNY of a minority ruins life for all! If you accept their every demands for these extreme "religious WHIMS" you become Iran with it's dictatorship of extreme religious minority, with it's theology of repression of thought and absolute destruction of human equality... And I agree it results in women being second rated and abused! ... This UNNECESSARY denigration of women is not mainstream Jewry, it is a backward IGNORANCE, a demeaning religious MYOPIA, and so DANGEROUS to the morale of the populace and should be kept in perspective as a tyrannical minority viewpoint, perhaps to be respected, but not allowed to tip the scales of equality...RESPECT THEM YES! ALLOW THEM TO DESTROY DEMOCRACY IN ISRAEL...NO! Besides, if the HOLIDAY INN can give you FREE earplugs, so can the SCHULES.
