The Knesset Committee on Status of the Woman was scheduled to visit Beit Shemesh on Thursday, a Knesset press release announced on Wednesday.

Led by chairwoman MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud), the committee will travel to the Bnot Orot School, which has been at the center of controversy in Beit Shemesh since it opened last September. It will then ride "mehadrin" bus line 418 from the city to Jerusalem. Hotovely said that she plans to sit in the front of the bus, the section typically reserved for men-only on gender-segregated buses.
