  1. In her interview, Shayna said, “I decided that kol isha is not erva”

    Sounds like Shaynaism (much like sheilaism see here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheilaism)
    A while back I remember reading a piece concerning someone’s interaction with an MO school staff member. When asked about the singing at a school event, the response was something like “we don’t hold from kol isha”. The questioner was taken aback as he had expected something more of a halachic response (e.g there weren’t to be any solos etc.)
