As an Orthodox Jewish I am well educated - I have a PhD- work full time and have four children. But at the same time I chose to respect the Torah, laws of modesty and respect the word of our Rabbis. As a result I have true and honest relationships with people without the preoccupation with sexuality I see in the world at large. I wish people would understand the separation between the sexes gives women the respect they deserve instead of being sex objects. Women are therefore respected and admired for their minds and efforts instead of their bodies. It is sad that people are so mired in sexual poltics that they can't see the beauty and respect that our religion has now and has always given to women.
