Knesset celebrates International Women’s Day, calls for improvements

Women lead in every area of Israeli life, from the judiciary to politics to technology to banking, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pointed out, addressing the Knesset on International Women’s Day Tuesday.

Netanyahu mentioned a 2,500 year-old seal archaeologists found in Jerusalem on Monday, which had the name of a woman in Hebrew – Elihana Bat Gael – saying the seal is “unique, because we don’t see many seals belonging to women, but we shouldn’t be surprised, because there have been women of special status throughout our history.”
