Women in Israel--the true picture (Yediot Achronot daily Newspaper, 10.11.02).
Women's wages are lower, women are less represented in Parliament and there are more unemployed women than men. The most painful section of the report deals with violence against women, revealing that in 2001, 28 women were murdered--13 of them by their partners.
Positive news that become apparent from the report was that despite discrimination, women still managed to improve their status in the army and in the political arena. Upper management on the other hand still favors men, with only 10% of Executive Director positions being held by women.
Rina Bar-Tal, Chair of the Israel Women's Network remarked that, "Israel is far from realizing the potential of women in Israel and internalizing the principles of equality."
