Only a small fraction of obstetrician-gynecologists provide abortions, reports Reuters, but among those Jews are more likely to perform the service than doctors from other religious groups.

Anna Solomon writes about Jewish women pioneers and mail-order brides in the Old West at Tablet.

Rachel Held Evans, an evangelical blogger, is spending a year following all of the bible’s instructions for women with the goal of making the Christian movement more egalitarian, writes Ruth Graham at Slate.

The New York Times remembers Jeanette Ingberman, a Yeshiva of Flatbush graduate and the founder of avant-garde gallery Exit Art, where she featured work with strong political and social messages often by women, minorities, and gay and lesbians.

Raquel Laneri at Forbes writes about power dressing for women.

A woman says that she was harassed for being Jewish, and also for eating a banana, at a hospital in Broward County in Florida.
