I just wanted to link to an article that I found very interesting. It's not particularly about feminism, but it is about the frum world so I consider it very appropriate.
The article is called "In Search of a Modest Proposal" and discusses many of the intricacies of dating and being single in the frum world. Here's a sample:
"The room was packed, but there’s an unspoken dance that transpires here each week, a kind of subconscious choreography. Men and women aren’t allowed to touch each other, so they must navigate carefully. A woman turned her body just to slide between two men, and they adjusted accordingly."
The only part I didn't like:
"Yet Weissman, while certainly a proponent of women’s education, believes that some women have placed their careers ahead of family life, which makes it harder to find a spouse. “I think feminism is a problem,” he said. “With the opportunity to have a successful career, a woman needs to keep in mind that everything in Judaism centers around the family.”
Yeah. Didn't like that comment.
Anyways, click here to read the rest of the article.
