Chapter 1 The Sabbath (God, the First Feminist)

The Sabbath is radically feminist. It’s a national holiday that includes women–all women, even foreign servant-girls, the world’s most helpless class of people. On pagan holidays, women work overtime. On God’s holidays, women rest, and no man can kick back, put his feet up, and order a woman to bring him a beer. God confers dignity on all people on the Sabbath; it is a great leveler. A king rests on the Sabbath, but so does a debtor-slave. Both are equally free, equally dignified, on Shabbat. It’s an oppression-free Utopia. It’s a wonder more social engineers haven’t discovered it.
