Minister of Culture and Sport, Limor Livnat, has expressed understanding for exclusion of women in Haredi neighborhoods stating that “I am not sure if it bothers me if there is a decision to segregate buses in Modi’in Illit or Beitar Illit.  That is their way of life.  If it does not bother any woman, I am not sure if it bothers me.”
