The Myth of Egalitarianism

By Rivkah Myers Shifren

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, January 6, 1995

God has designated roles for men and women, and while they are different, they are not unequal in importance or significance. Any inequality that women claim exists is due to the culture in which Jews live, not due to the Torah's teachings. Jewish women should embrace the role they have been given from God and be proud of it.
