Livnat: We cannot forfeit rights of women in Israel

The Justice Ministry unreasonably delayed the release of a report on discrimination against women, Culture and Sport Minister and chairwoman of the Ministerial Committee for the Status of Women Limor Livnat said on Sunday.

Meanwhile, MKs Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) and Shuli Muallem (Bayit Yehudi) proposed legislation requiring at least four women to be on the panel that selects religious judges, or dayanim, which currently has no female members.

"This delay is disproportionate, to say the least, and allows the exclusion of women to increase and spread," Livnat stated at a special meeting of the ministerial committee.

According to Livnat, she and the Authority to Promote the Status of Women in the Prime Minister's Office constantly receive complaints of discrimination.
