Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Thursday announced the formation of a Justice Ministry team charged with making recommendations for dealing with discrimination against women.

Weinstein held a special consultation on the matter in the wake of haredi (ultra-Orthodox) discrimination against women in Beit Shemesh.

The attorney-general stated during the meeting that the exclusion of women and violence against women have no place in a civilized society.

Weinstein added that the phenomenon must be dealt with, but that the state must be cautious not to intervene in the haredi community when it is unnecessary.
