    that is only in orthodox Judaism.

    and like most orthodox religions, women are second class citizens. there are no female priests, or female imams, or orthodox jewish rabbis.

    there are female rabbis in less orthodox segments of Judaism. same as there are female episcopal ministers.

    thanks for your concern. if only it applied to other religions aside from the one that seems to offend you.

    There are are other countries where they can be rabbis. It depends on the sect, ultra orthodox would not agree to women. Conservative and reform do allow.

    It would be like ISIS or alqaida allowing women muftis, ain't going to happen anytime soon. Saudi have permitted women to join the judges of sharia and women in government, but there are limits to them actually speaking or openly discussing with the men. Not sure of the details but I would guess they have submit their opinions in writing.
    Women used to have a much higher presence in the time of Mohammed. Now they are not seen or hear and carry only half the value of a man with no rights to their own body or their children.

    All the major religions are pretty sexist. It sucks to be a woman when any of them are interpreted literally.

    Thank goodness we have a constitution.
