    The group these people are from Women of the wall is a political group, they want equal rights for men & women in religion. They don't accept the idea that there are some things in religion men are allowed to do which women are not or that the Kotel is run under Halachic rules rather than womens rights. All these things they do like putting on a talit, wearing teffilin, carrying the Torah scroll non of it has anything to do with religion they are political stunts. Same way women in secular society carried out all kinds of stunts for equal rights these people are carrying out stunts for equal rights in religion but the thing they don't seem to understand is religion is not something thats meant to change its rules to satisfy the current trends in secular society. The Kotel has rules which everybody is expected to respect including these women. Also if they have any respect for the jewish religion they will stop trying to politicize it for their own misguided agenda.
