"In 2006, Jen Taylor Friedman—one of the first soferot (female ritual scribes) in a male-dominated profession—gave Barbie a new look: she created a version of the famous doll sporting modest clothing, a tallit (prayer shawl) and her own miniature pair of tefillin (phylacteries). tefillin Barbie—whose picture swept through the blogosphere—provokes reactions that range from disgust to shock to amusement to great admiration."

props to Elisha for the pics and links

I am pretty uninformed about this whole issue with women wearing teffilin. Why do reform and conservative women wear them? Do they just not "hold" of women being patur in mitzvas asay shezman grama?

Kol Kavod - IF you disagree with this then just go somewhere else. We respect your desire to live in a world where women's self expression is limited. And all we ask is the freedom to practise Judaism as revelation has led us. (And I am an observant man who loves and respects the women in my life who are shomer tefillin).
