    The Western Wall plaza is run according to orthodox Judaism as it should be considering its the holiest place in the world where Jews are able to go pray and its to small to accommodate all sects. Women of the wall is not even a religious sect they are basically a group who want to bring feminism into religion ... why shouldn't a woman be allowed to read from a Torah or wear a talit if a man can .. what happened to equality of sexes? Its good old fashioned feminism. Women of the Wall are not allowed to hold their feminist services in the plaza but they have been allowed to pray at Robinsons Arch which is part of the wall. When they don't want to or if they cannot pray at Robinsons Arch for some reason the solution is nice and simple and thats they go to the plaza but they respect the way things work there.
