The chairwoman of the Women’s International Zionist Organization in Israel, Gila Oshrat called on party leaders Tuesday to stop the exclusion of women in the political sphere and make sure they are represented at the negotiations table for coalition talks.

"The lack of representation of women in the coalition negotiations reflects a chauvinistic and dangerous mindset,” Oshrat said.

"It is inconceivable that every time an event this magnitude takes place, a group of men sit and make crucial decisions about our lives,” she added, “We must strive for an egalitarian society and this duty lies first and foremost on the government and its leaders.”
