Former supreme court chief justice Dorit Beinisch said on Wednesday that it is important that Israel complete a constitution to ensure the state's democratic institutions and human rights.

Beinisch's remarks were distributed in an Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) press release following her acceptance of an IDC award as an "Honorary Colleague" for being among a group of leaders in the areas of Zionism, entrepreneurship, social responsibility, philanthropy and economic success.

President of the IDC, Professor Uriel Reichman, presented the awards. Reichman addressed the issue of women's equality, noting that
last year "we witnessed a difficult phenomenon of excluding women from the public space.

He added that in responding to this behavior "which harms equality, freedom and human dignity," IDC would be at the forefront, condemning inequality "unequivocally and unhesitatingly."
