I want to add an important note to my, "In this Patriarchal Society" post.
Not all Orthodox Jewish men are as I described in my last post. While I have noticed a pattern in it, I also know that there are many Orthodox men who are perfectly respectful.
And to be fair, it's not only the Orthodox men who treat single women differently than they do married women. There are plenty of Orthodox women who do as well.
My apologies to anyone out there reading this blog who may have been offended by my characterization of all Orthodox men being "patriarchal."
