It is our job to intensify the struggle over Israel's position, said Opposition leader Tzipi Livni at the Emergency Conference on Women's Exclusion held Friday by NGO "We Power."

"Our job today is to wake up those who are asleep. The struggle is not an issue just for women, but it is clear that if we do not stand in the front, no-one else will lead this struggle for the state of Israel," Livni said.

She continued: "...imagine the situation where female scientists receive the a prize at an event, but are not allowed to get up on the stage, and this happens in days when three women win the Nobel Peace Prize - if we don't stand today at the front of the stage, they won't let us get on the stage at all."

"Our job is to change the reality of here and now," she concluded.
