    Historically, Jewish observance has fallen on WOMEN: kashrus, family purity, ushering in the Sabbath, PASSING ON THE RELIGION. All the *key elements* that make Judaism Judaism. Checking the house for chametz has never been a male-only activity - I have no idea why anyone would even think that. The ONLY activity that men do that women don't that is mentioned in this article is the bris, and for a good reason (no woman could stand seeing a man come at her baby with a knife!). The only people who "forget" women are the ones who don't value their contribution in the first place, don't *do* what Jewish women are supposed to do, & they are the ones making up empty ritual to fill in the gap - the "bat mitzvah" & the "baby naming ceremony". Instead of yearning after what men have, women should realize that what we already have is much better.
