Former Supreme Court judge Eliyahu Matza on Thursday called on women to begin a campaign of civil disobedience against increasing attempts to subjugate them in the public sphere.

In an with interview Army Radio, the former High Court Vice President said, "Social justice is not only about the price of cottage cheese or interest rates on a mortgage. There are values that must be fought for, and women's exclusion is out of the question."

In addition to women's exclusion, Matza attacked what he perceived as an increasing phenomenon of "anti-democratic legislation" in the Knesset.

"A significant proportion of our parliament thinks that there is no equality... In their view, there are citizens of class A and class B and we must legislate laws for each of them specifically."
