I would love to see Mrs. Freier become the role model for all Hasidic women – and not just for those like the ones she attended school with.
Charedi schools like Darkei Sarah now realize that the Charedi family can no longer survive on the kinds of menial jobs women can get without a decent education.
In Bais Yaakov, you were either they way they wanted you to be, or you were wrong.
Special Note: Several weeks ago, I published a letter from a young kollel wife who wrote of the conflict that she was experiencing in trying to be an akeres habayis - wife and mother, and at the same time a breadwinner for her family.
