I'm currently slightly more than halfway through this book. Has anyone here read it? I'd love to discuss it.

I haven't read the book but I can tell you I believe in equality between men and women in all things Judaic. The fact that there are stil Jews who believe menstruation is unclean and a woman has to visit the mikvah, etc. etc. etc. is just disgusting.  Although, I have visited mikvahs and find it an incredible experience which has nothing to do with unclean. That Wall is just as much Jewish women's as Jewish men's. 

I know that wasn't a book discussion but you got an opinion:)
