It has been a year since the uproar surrounding gender segregation and discrimination against women in Israel, yet the ugly phenomenon continues and grows, supposedly in the name of Judaism. Not only in is it present on gender segregated buses, but also in a growing number of incidents of verbal and physical abuse- at the Western Wall, deleting of women from public advertising, exclusion from political representation and even "Men Only" entry to shelters during operation Pillar of Defense.
Marking International Human Rights day [December 10], Israeli artists have come together with Hiddush to call for an end to gender discrimination stemming from religious extremism. Share this clip with your friends and join the discussion: Facebook: www.facebook.com/Hiddush Twitter: @Hiddush
