In the Hasidic world, women do not exist

Take a quick look at this article. I know it's foxnews, but I've seen this story elsewhere in reliable sources.

The Hasidic newspaper routinely omits pictures of women from news items and advertising. Where I live, there are several orthodox daily newspapers that have NO pictures of women at all. Not only that, but to the extent possible, they will not even list the names of women in the stories. A typical wedding announcement will say Mr X and his wife (without giving the name).

The ironic thing here is that although the Hasidic community tends to be conservative politically, they gave all their support to Hillary when she ran for Senate and President.
