It has always puzzled me as a woman, that we refer to ourselves as the weaker and more vulnerable gender. We all know this is not true. Men are literally controlled by Taivas Nashim, while women do not have this problem towards Anashim at all.

Chassidus applied! Learning so much! Especially respect how R’ J delicately, modestly & respectfully talks about delicate matters on a public forum. A true role model
Thank you
