President Shimon Peres decried Monday attempts to control where women can sit or appear in public spaces, Army Radio reported.

"No man has the authority to force a woman to site where he wants. If a man doesn't want to get on a bus, then he shouldn't get on. No one is forcing him," Peres said during his speech at an anti-human trafficking conference at the President's Residence in Jerusalem.

The president was referring to certain streams within the ultra-Orthodox community that have tried to require certain bus lines to be gender-segregated.
