Women of the Wall is a feminist group trying to introduce feminism into religion, the wearing of a talit and all the other things they do is their way of saying if a man can do it then so can a woman, there must be sexual equality in religion. With regard to wearing the talit at the Kotel, even if there are no religious laws against it at there are rules of what is allowed at the Western Wall plaza. The Kotel is a tourist attraction so we don't need it turned into a feminist stage but also considering its the holiest place Jews are allowed to pray at orthodox Judaism should apply at this one place. There is a section for women if they want to accept the rules and just pray because they want to talk to God not make political stunts and not allowing them to wear a talit doesn't affect their ability to pray. Attempts were made to accommodate Women of the Wall by letting them do their thing at Robinsons Arch which is a section of the Kotel but just not part of the main plaza, if this is about praying they will be content to pray there in their own way but this SMALL FRINGE GROUP has no right to try dictate how things should be run in areas not set aside for them. Society has rules, some we like others we don't but in a democracy we all obey the laws equally.
