5 minutes from the acclaimed film:
Praying In Her Own Voice directed by Yael Katzir and produced by Dan Katzir and Ravit Markus.

This powerful film documents the courageous struggle of the famed "Women of the wall" movement. This group has spearheaded the battle for female equality in the religious world. Their main focus has been on the Wailing Wall - the holiest site for Jews where orthodox, conservative and reform women are not allowed to gather and pray. For the past decade they have challenged the government of Israel and the entire Jewish world by raising a lot of media attention both through colorful protests and by their unstoppable legal battle -- which has ended several times at the Israeli Supreme Court which made some very controversial rulings.

The story of the Women of the Wall is a test case for the deprived status of women in Israeli public life. The film is an outcry protesting religious coercion and the violent silencing of women. It's a film that raises many questions about the battle of the sexes within the religious Jewish world.
In this segment words by:
Rabbi Sharon Brous, Rabbi Laura Geller, Rabbi Lisa Edwards, Rabbi Naomi Levy, Rabbi Lynn Brody, Rabbi Denise Eger and head of WOW (Women of the wall) Anat Hoffman.
