Discussing the issue of women's exclusion, Culture and Sport Minister Limor Livnat said Sunday morning that "we must live and let live."
In an interview with Army Radio, Livnat, who leads the Interministerial Committee on the Status of Women, opined that in entirely haredi
[ultra-orthodox] cities, segregation on public transport should be allowed, rather than forced."I don't think we should tell them how to live," said Livnat, "We should live and let live. "
"When we are speaking about a mixed city, however, or a city where there are haredim or religious people who oppose segregation, we must fight the phenomenon," she added.
