RCA condemns Gital Dodelson's husband for refusing to give a get

Some progress has been made in helping the divorced law student whose scummy husband refused to grant a get:
The Rabbinical Council of America’s release Wednesday of a statement condemning the refusal to deliver or receive a get is being touted by supporters of Gital Dodelson as proof that the high-profile public campaign to end her agunah status is working.

Earlier this month, the 25-year-old law student from New Jersey took her story beyond social media and the Jewish press to the mainstream media in efforts to get her recalcitrant husband, Avrohom Meir Weiss, to give her a Jewish divorce. Without his giving her the divorce decree, she remains an agunah, or “chained woman” who is unable to date other men or remarry.

The public exposure of Dodelson’s case led to Weiss’s father and uncle’s resignation last week from their positions at Artscroll, a leading Orthodox publishing house.

Dodelson’s well-mobilized supporters are now putting pressure on the leadership of Yeshiva of Staten Island, where Weiss, the scion of a leading rabbinical family, studies. They are effectively asking the head of the yeshiva, Rabbi Reuven Feinstein, to expel his grandson.
All the same, I don't see why a civil divorce isn't enough, and am downright disappointed in anybody in her community who would damn her for dating at this point if she's already split up. This is the consequence of letting flawed religious beliefs get the better of one's thinking.
