Of course, Jewish law also protects women and imposes on men certain obligations to support and satisfy them. For a view of the way in which non-Orthodox Jewish feminists perceive the treatment accorded to women in halakhah, see, for example, Rachel Adler, “The Jew Who Wasn’t There: Halakhah and the Jewish Woman,” Davka (Summer 1972), 7–11, reprinted in On Being A Jewish Feminist, ed. Susannah Heschel (New York: 1983), 12–18; idem, Engendering Judaism: An Inclusive Theology and Ethics (Jerusalem: 1998); Paula Hyman, “The Other Half: Women in the Jewish Tradition,” Conservative Judaism 26 (Summer 1972), 14 –21, reprinted in The Jewish Woman: New Perspectives, ed.
