Marc Shapiro on Women Rabbis and Kol Isha

I have blogged recently about issues relating to women's ordination and  modesty. In the sphere of our contemporary grapplings with Halakha that relates to gender , I very much enjoyed two blog posts on the topic by Marc Shapiro. He does not hide his personal predilections and is clearly in favour of an increased woman's leadership role in the Orthodox community. However, even if you are not in that space, the sources he brings are important reading.

Kol Isha
Thanks to the Sephorim Blog.

Let me add that this article by Rabbi Michael Broyde and Rabby Shlmomo Brody is one of the better presentations - informative, sensitive, correct balance between traditional and progressive - that I have seen on the topic.
