What are some good books, articles, websites, or seforim for learning about the Halachot of constructing and maintaining a Shul Mechitza (the barrier between the men and women sections)?
Issues include: How tall and wide must they be? Can there be any gaps between the sections? Must they completely opaque on both sides, or can they be one-sided mirrors and the like? Do they have to be permanent? Etc. Appreciated, but not required: What's the history of the Mechitza?
I'd appreciate materials that are well sourced and\or footnoted, in either English or Hebrew. Thanks you.
