A dozen years ago, when my father passed away, I said Kaddish and most of the people who heard it thought it was very strange for a daughter to do it (although I have no brothers). Less than four years ago my mother passed away and less people thought it was weird I said Kaddish for her. In 2010 Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said it was ok for daughters to say kaddish if there are no brothers. I believe the Israeli population is more and more open and what used to be considered extreme Reform twenty years ago, slowly becomes mainstram today. I am glad to see that since I have been Reform my entire adult life. Still, I think it is a problem that the "Women of the wall" create provocations. I don't have anything against them praying the way they want, but they should not do it on purpose in order to offend people. Each one of them, praying alone, has my support. As a loud group trying to get attention and to provoke, they don't enjoy my support because they create tension and not compromise.
