Why do these women need to PROOVE themselves the equal of men? Is it possible that they are better in many ways and do not need to read the Torah themselves. Certainly like it when a man opens the door for them. Then he is a gentleman. If he reads the Torah for the women he is a Religious Zealot. The Law comes from Sinai, and the separation is for a reason despite what the Conservative (I was brought up Conservative) and Reform and unaffiliated think. The Israeli Supreme Court, just like British Common Law, and American Law, is anchored in Torah...... despite how Jews of certain agendas try to spin and twist the TRUTH!
