It’s not that complicated if you trust your brains and gut feelings
At first, women had to do most of the work in the world while men were ‘busy’ drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco. They would have and raise the children, shop and cook and clean for everyone, provide sexual and emotional services, take all blame, all for free and without much in return.
If they had nice husbands, their work was appreciated.
Then came the feminist demands that women would be entitled to congregate, enjoy higher education, and take paying jobs (and vote).
The forces of oppression translated that into the idea that a liberated woman must make her job and her house a success. The work piled up.
Nice husbands would chip in, in principle. But often, in practice, not.
Meanwhile, medical science didn’t sit still. People got older. Now, women had to take care of their kids and their parents. The sandwich generation.
And now (new!), Jewish women should reclaim the right to learn Talmud.
Well, may I point out why Mrs. Curie got two Nobel Prizes and Mrs. Einstein none? Because only the first got a supportive husband. Ambition is nice, but not while you’re already exploited to the hilt. As compensation, the latter had to share her husband with all kinds of other women.
Rebbetzin Blu Greenberg has an absolute sweetheart for a husband.
So, take it easy with piling more expectations on just any woman.
On top of that, learning Talmud is not for every woman. Just like it is not for every man. That is not a blemish. G^d makes everyone different.
To open up all paying jobs, family care, and higher Jewish learning to all Jewish women is great. To expect all women to ‘fully unfold’ themselves is abusive and sexist. Only with enough support, a woman should take more on her plate. And only after she already has the space and time to take care of her core needs, like sleep, good food, emotional support, etc.
Not the first time I’ve spoken out against an a lack of care for women by people against or for traditional Judaism, and for or against feminism.
