Tanya Rosenblit spoke before an inter-ministerial committee on the exclusion of women from the public domain on Wednesday, telling the committee members that she had received death threats in recent days.

Rosenblit made headlines last month when she boarded a "mehadrin" bus headed to Jerusalem from Ashdod and refused to yield to the demands of haredi passengers to move to the back of the bus. She was invited to speak before the committee by Culture and Sport Minister Limor Livnat.

The young woman said that she'd filed a complaint with the police after receiving death threats via Facebook and email.
