For centuries, secular Jewish women have regarded their ultra-Orthodox sisters as semi-literate baby-making machines that live in abject poverty.

It’s true that most ultra-Orthodox families are quite large, and it’s also true that many such families live below the poverty line. But although the women in such families may not be very well versed in secular subjects, they certainly know their Judaism, and these days most have finished high school, and in- creasing numbers have continued on to re- ligious seminaries and colleges. Some have even gone to university.
