It was nice to see a few frum women in several photos standing in the back and on the side but nonetheless still there to show their respect for this gadol hador. It was sad that in the photos of the levayahs in Cleveland and again in Lakewood, there were no girls or women who attended the levayah.

I'm sure there were women in attendance at the levayah in Cleveland were Rav Chaim lived since the 40's. Perhaps none were in the photographs posted. Lakewood is another story, as Lakewood is... well, Lakewood.

If you look at the photos of the lake wood levaya there are women in three of them on the sidewalks and to the sides of the the larger group of men. Just because women are Tzenuot doesn't mean they aren't there!!!
