The world evolved. People have gotten smarter and learned that things ought to be different.  Change scares the Rabbonim.

They are allowed. Just they would not feel comfortable/right doing it. Like you wouldn't see a congressman rollerblading on the streets of DC. In a park...maybe.

Theres an expression that is hard to translate. Is pas nisht.

+1, bringing a comparison to the blatant sexism that existed in the world before shouldn't have any bearing on this discussion. If anything it disproves your point.

It's ridiculous and I'm not afraid to say that. BTW, the info re: Ger women not driving is incorrect to the best of my knowledge.

I still haven't seen a reason articulated in this thread. I'm genuinely curious.

..and what exactly do you "hear" about it?

What's the legitimate concern such people hope to mitigate?
Itís not in the highest level of tzinus. Period
  In  the highest level of tzinus woman are almost never supposed to leave their house. Society has changed and itís almost not possible nowadays. Iím litvish and wasnít brought up that way to actually practice in this way but ďI hear it ď.

I have Ger relatives in NY. Out of 7 of the girl cousins just one drives.

My cousin tried convincing his wife to take out a license and she wants to but she won't because she fears her kids will have issues with shidduchim one day.

Exactly the point I can't understand. And the taxi issue as well. I have no understanding of this policy

OK. But the question is what the reasoning is for the communities who do not allow it is, not what miles lover's reasoning is.
