Several women have been denied entry to the Israeli parliament due to the “short” length of their skirts. The women – who work in the Knesset building – are facing strict dress code restrictions, for no apparent reason.
Around 50 co-workers and parliamentarians gathered at the building entrance on Wednesday morning to protest the new rules. Among them was Manuel Trajtenberg, a 66-year-old MP, who said, “we need to respect and not humiliate these amazing women who work with all their hearts.”
Trajtenberg declared the restrictions as “discrimination against women”, before taking off his shirt and walking into the building.
