Tkhines are prayers written in Yiddish for those who didn't read or understand Hebrew. The majority of tkhines were written for women, for domestic rather than synagogue use. Some tkhines were also written by women, but since many writers of prayers would use pen names it is hard to tell how many.

An excellent example of a tkhine for these times can be found here, translated into English by Meena-Lifshe Viswanath  Zach Golden and Noam Lerman from Der Tkhines Proyekt
