I agree with the author, many of our "Halacha" was developed in eras where women were either chattel or 2nd class citizens. Most of modern day l conveniences such as electricity, air travel, microwave cooking, computers 7 smart phones, just to mention a few did not exist. Many people live in urban areas far from the synagogues of their choice. It is imperative that the whole body oh Halacha and traditional practices be reviewed and brought into the 21st century.
