Are There #ThingsOnlyJewishWomenHear?

Hashtag activism continues apace. There’s #ThingsOnlyWomenWritersHear, where women writers on Twitter are sharing patronizing responses they will, on occasion, receive. Then there’s #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear, a collection of tweets recalling sexist remarks framed in religious terms.

So how about Jewish women? Are there #ThingsOnlyJewishWomen hear? (A search for that hashtag thus far reveals only that two others have also wondered this, but summons no examples.) I have my own thoughts, but curious to hear yours. Comments are open.
