Ragen writes about the anti-heros of the religious world, glamorizing the rebels and the outcasts who have violated the orthodox cultural norms. She is lionized by the secular press, and her books are published under the imprints of the general public. She assumed that Shapiro, who lives in a more cloistered haredi world, would never realize her work was being stolen, and even if discovered it would be assumed that the great Ragen was being emulated by the poor haredi woman. In fact, I think that Shapiro is the daughter of a famous American author, and had a first rate education in the US before becoming religious.
