The issue is simple and the situation pathetic. There is not other "democracy" in the world which would perceive an "issue". People need to be free to practice their religion as they like so long as they do not really hurt someone else not (their subjective holiness feelings) and every citizen should be free NOT to practice any religious act, including as a means to marriage or divorce. the purpose of the state is to protect the individual's liberty not to enforce some clerical dictate. really simple. public space (like the Kotel) must be shared by all citizens without religious coercion but with personal dignity. wearing a talit or tefilin may offend someone religiously if done by a women but it certainly is not "offensive" on a non-religious level. so get out of their faces and let these women exercise their democratic freedom.
