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
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."
