Very much so.
There are also a small segment of men who are prohibited from driving...

Because women are bad drivers.

Simple as that.
Lol... racist
What about DDF, do you think women should be allowed here as well? When does it end? You start with a car and pretty soon you end up with women taking control of everything, אין לדבר סוף.
There are many women on DDF.

I am guessing the same communities that have signs for women not to walk on the same side of the street as men?

No. Even more general 'normal' communities have this rule and enforce it. At least in Israel.

Which sects do or don't allow driving?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I know Belz doesn't. In the US most of my Ger cousin's 'cant' though a few get away with it.

I had an aunt that used to tell me,

Isn't it more tznuisdig for women to drive? Then they're not seen walking in the street..

I really believe it comes more from not letting the women have that freedom than an issue of Tznius.

It also depends where. In Lakewood or Monsey, for example, where everything is more spread out, some communities consider it more acceptable for women to drive.
Brevity may be the soul of wit, but floridity is its spirit.

No chassidishe kehilla allows. Period.

Monsey used to be different, but over the last few years it's become unacceptable as well.most schools won't accept families that the women drive. ( Which deserves a separate thread on the wonderful day...)

Plenty of Yeshivish schools as well in Israel won't accept you if the mother drives.


I had a cousin who had a paraplegic daughter and she drove her to her special school in Yerushalayim and they threatened to kick her out if she kept driving her.
