Gotta keep them barefoot, pregnant, and ignorant

Postby Anaxagoras » Tue Aug 23, 2016 11:48 am

Ultra-Orthodox rabbis ban women from going to university in case they get ‘dangerous’ secular knowledge

This is the Satmar Jews. Abdul knows about them.

The strict Satmar sect issued the decree, seen by The Independent, warning that university education for women is “dangerous”. Written in Yiddish, the decree warns: “It has lately become the new trend that girls and married women are pursuing degrees in special education. Some attend classes and others online. And so we’d like to let their parents know that it is against the Torah.

“We will be very strict about this. No girls attending our school are allowed to study and get a degree. It is dangerous. Girls who will not abide will be forced to leave our school. Also, we will not give any jobs or teaching position in the school to girls who’ve been to college or have a degree.

"We have to keep our school safe and we can’t allow any secular influences in our holy environment. It is against the base upon which our Mosed was built.”

Sort of a religious North Korea. Repressive social systems increasingly rely on keeping the inmates ignorant and fearful of the outside world.

The term "ultra" is meaningless as an ideological marker. All it means is they dress funny.

Among the Lubavitchers (also "ultra"), the women have better secular educations than the men because the men are busy studying Torah and someone has to support the family. :)
