Kadima MK looks to criminalize gender segregation

MK Nachman Shai (Kadima) submitted to the Knesset on Tuesday a bill proposal that would define gender segregation as a criminal act punishable with a prison sentence.
The bill would provide for a sentence of three years for anyone charged with "publicizing, inciting, preaching or encouraging gender segregation in the public sphere," according to a statement released by Shai.
Additionally, violations of the law committed in order to facilitate gender segregation or hostility towards the public because of gender affiliation will carry either a double penalty for the crime or a ten year prison sentence.
"The bill proposal is meant to prevent and act decisively against those working to degrade and humiliate women in Israel," Shai explained.
