                                  Answer:
   
   Reform believes in the equality of men and women, and, where
   necessary, has introduced alternative mitzvot and rituals to address
   religious needs in this fashion. Reform allows women to be both rabbis
   and cantors, counts them as part of the minyon (quorum for public
   prayer), allows women to initiate a divorce, and provides a
   berit-equivalent ceremony for girls (no medical procedure is done,
   however).
