Gender segregation on Israeli buses continues despite ruling
In January, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that gender segregation on bus lines serving ultra-Orthodox neighbourhoods is illegal. Posters were put up on buses to remind men that women have the right to sit wherever they want. Six months on, change is somewhat noticeable; but in practice women riding the tHaredi ("God-fearing") bus lines usually sit at the back.
