← Ultra-Orthodox Jews Rally to Discuss Risks of Internet

Elisabeth Cornwell's Avatar Jump to comment 3 by Elisabeth Cornwell

RDF-US is doing all we can to increase the dangers and bring this sort of madness to an end.

It is worthy to note that only men are involved in this protest. Orthodox Judaism is an extraordinarily oppressive institution, and its contempt for women is appalling and glaring (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/15/world/middleeast/israel-faces-crisis-over-role-of-ultra-orthodox-in-society.html?pagewanted=all). We focus so much on Islam, we neglect the issues surrounding the ultra-orthodox version of Judaism.
