"Targeting women voters is a natural choice," said Yachimovich. "Me and the other women on the Labor list for Knesset are deeply committed to fighting for women's rights… our agenda is very relevant to women. Women were and will be the first to feel the burden (Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu strains on the middle class and the poor when it come to education, health, livelihood and the ability to afford food and housing.


"Women are those who will determine what kind of government we will have. I urge them to vote for the party that can improve their lives and that will stop the economic, social and diplomatic escalation," Yachimovich said.
