i agree 1000% with this writer but this indignity to women is smoke and air compared to the travesty of the rabbinical courts and the rabinates marraige monopoly. first they force women to hear a lecture on how their period makes them "impure" on how to check the end of the blood flow with linen swabs, and then how and when to have sex. they then are forced to go to a mikve 9whether they chose to or not) as a state imposed pre-condition to a marraige license. then if they need a divorce, they are subject to the most antiquated anti-women system in any purported democracy. a court made up exclusively of haredi men who force her to give in to almost any demand her husband makes 9financial, child support, child customdy etc.) to get free and in many cases condemn her to a lifetime of slavery as an anchored woman (aguna) with no recourse at all. all this with the power of and in the name of this purported state democracy. it is ludicrous and sickening. so with all due respect to the wearing of tallitot at the kotel, we have much much much bigger human rights violations of women that this country perpetrates with the full police power of the state.
