Synopsis: 

In her erudite volume, Prof. Tamar Ross attempts to delineate the points of conflict between unabashed feminism and Orthodox Judaism, and presents a new theological approach in an attempt to bridge this gap. Prof. Aryeh Frimer believes that Dr. Ross has failed to attain this goal for two reasons: firstly, the theology presented is at odds with basic tenets of faith that have characterized Orthodox Judaism over the millennia. Secondly, the work fails to fully appreciate the halakhic process and the complexity of rabbinic literature.
