Dozens of men and women marched from central Jerusalem to Mea She'arim on Wednesday to protest an enforced gender segregation within the religious neighborhood during current holidays.

Large police forces accompanied the march to prevent any potential violence from extremist Haredim who might try to stop and attack those participating in the march.

The High Court of Justice on Tuesday permitted the march but ruled that it must end before reaching Kikar Hashabbat, at the heart of Mea She'arim.
