Meretz chairwoman calls haredi parties, 'chauvinistic'

Meretz Chairwoman Zehava Gal-On attacked the Shas and United Torah Judaism parties, in for their answer to the Knesset's Central Elections Committee which held deliberations on the appeal to disqualify them for exclusion of women.


"Shas and United Torah Judaism are dark, chauvinistic parties, leaning on halachic and anachronistic perceptions from 3,000 years ago. They cynically take advantage of women in order to prevent them from exercising their rights," said Gal-On. (Roi Mandel)
