A Woman's Place is in the Sukkah

I’m a devoted reader of Boston Globe reporter Michael Paulson’s blog, Articles of Faith, even despite his recent removal of Jewschool from his blogroll.
Today, he posted a video about Sukkot by Globe photographer Joanne Rathe. I don’t think the video will shock anyone here in terms of the information presented, but it was fascinating to me because of the absence of men, despite focusing on an Orthodox family. (I’m making an assumption here based in part on the way the women are dressed.) And I’m pleased that it was presented simply as “a look at the traditions associated with the Jewish holiday of Sukkot as seen through the eyes of a family in Boston” and not “a female perspective on Sukkot.”
