Mechitzos & Women's Minyanim

I have always found it amusing, disturbing, & odd that many of the recent Orthodox Jewish Feminist Synagogue innovations, such as Women's Aliyot & Women's Minyanim emphasize how they have mechitzot/s & wouldn't dare of giving them up.

Odd because there are more explicit sources against Women's Aliyot, Minyanim, etc. than against mixed services. It's either a matter of the sociology interacting with Halakhah or an example of the rule that if you repeat something enough times, people will believe it.
