URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_calendar/item/broken_vows_how_our_communities_aiding_and_abetting_the_agunah_problem

A film and panel discussion with Sharon Shenhav, Israeli attorney, Alexandra Leichter, family law attorney, Rabbi Abraham Lieberman, YULA Girls High School
Film: Women Unchained.
Through the lens of the documentary film we will learn the stories of agunot,women who cannot remarry because their husbands refuse to give them a ‘get,’ a Jewish divorce.
Why has the Orthodox community tolerated this abuse and injustice for so long? What is happening in Los Angeles? What are the measures we can take to prevent this problem?
