    It's still not clear to me what is being promoted, the agenda of the Reform and Conservative movements, or the equality of women. There are many issues relating to the discrimination of women in the work force, in wage structures, and other aspects of Israeli life that "oppress them" in very real ways that are not addressed by the WOW. Where are these liberat minded women when there is a possibliity of appointing a woman to the head the Bank of Israel, and it's clear that the men "that are in charge" are preventing her from taking the position? I realize the need for spiritual growth, but for some reason, there are too many single parents, as well as simply other well qualified women that experience wage discrimination, and are passed over for promotions simply because of their sex. It would make more sense to let the issue of women in Judaism, as important as it is, go, for the meantime.and go for the struggle to improve the status of women in the workplace, and other aspects of the economy. It's obvious, to me, at least, when they are full partners in our national life, Judasim will know to adjust to that "fact of life" without too much of a struggle.
