Women of the Wall plan their monthly Rosh Chodesh prayers at the Kotel the second day of the month, with a Torah scroll. It’s okay to make up rules as they go along, so long as the Orthodox don’t make the rules.
It can be argued whether the Women of the Wall are spiritual angels, but no sane person could accuse them of threatening rabbis to approve their agenda or face death. So who is behind the dirty work?

Yes, they've won a battle, a long one at that—but the war is far from over.
"Our struggle is only about the Kotel."
The women win a battle, but the question is, “Do they want a war they might lose?” Netanyahu approves Sharansky’s plan for women to pray like men in an “egalitarian” section at the Western Wall.
Sharansky says the Western Wall is long enough for women to have their own minyan and Torah reading. The Women of the Wall leader accepts the compromise. Will the Rabbinate big enough to agree?
Israel’s Haredi rabbis continue to make a mockery of themselves and of Judaism by pressing to arrest women for saying the mourner’s prayer at the Kotel. Sharansky comes to the rescue.
One of the paratroopers in attendance announced that, after they had liberated the Kotel, everyone was welcome to pray there.
WOW spokesperson said police behavior was "sneaky," or at least confusing, seeing as they arrested the women after they had already cleared the area.
