In today’s daf the daughters of Tzlofchad are praised for their intelligence and for their ability to interpret texts (and their righteousness that they didn’t marry until age 40 – they waited until they found men who were worthy). They weren’t afraid to stand up before the people and demand what they thought was rightfully theirs. And as a result, they were respected and received what was rightfully theirs. The Oral Torah, with the Gemara at its center, belongs to both men and women and should be taught and interpreted by both men and women to men and women.
