Do you notice that sexism and misogyny in Israel don’t receive Western coverage and condemnation?
"The latest storm to emerge from the office of Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman stems from the plan being considered to separate the sexes in Jerusalem's psychiatric institutions. The idea is to transform the Kfar Shaul Psychiatric Hospital to men-only, and Eitanim to an all-women's facility. At a meeting Monday in Jerusalem, the deputy health minister confirmed his intention to evaluate the initiative of separating the sexes in psychiatric institutions. Litzman also said that as a first step, he would take action so that a women's only section would be set up at Eitanim." (thanks Olivia)
