In response to the quote of "no where is it written that woman can't be
alone"- perhaps that is because when the Torah wrote that it is not good
for man to live alone, he was alone, whereas women never lived alone. On
the other hand, I do not think that the human race would last any longer
with only women and not men, for together they populate the world. At
least that is how I thought it worked.
Is it really true that "whatever men achieve with a minyan, women have it
in themselves?" According to the poskim, ten women do not make a minyan,
let alone one woman. While there are certain aspects of Judaism that a
woman has over a man, such as: that a woman, since she davens by herself,
does it more "Lishma" since there is no desire of Kavod, honor, present at
all, a certain level of Kedusha, that of a tzibbur, is reached when there
are ten males over Bar Mitzvah age present, a level not attained by
1,000,000 children. Is this to say that children are treated unfairly? Of
course not, it is just a "din" in kedusha that requires ten men.
One last point, since when is a mitzvah considered "only a mitzvah?" I
always believed that it a great zechus, merit, to be able to do mitzvos,
the will of the Ribono Shel Olam, the creator of the world.
