A day after Labor party hopeful Uri Sagi dropped out of the party's primary race over sexual harassment allegations against him, Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich dedicated a large portion a speech Saturday to the topic, in addition to themes of empowering female politicians and her own early history of discovering feminism.

Public officials, she told a panel of Labor Women primary candidates in Tel Aviv, must be held to a higher standard than the threshold of criminality, "a leadership standard, a public standard."
