On Monday, the Women's International Zionist Organization took issue with the fact that only men are involved in coalition talks.

WIZO chairwoman Gila Oshrat wrote a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid demanding they add women to their negotiating teams.

According to Oshrat, the lack of women in coalition talks "reflects a dangerous, chauvinist atmosphere and a twisted idea that only men can direct the agenda and run the country."
