Shaked fights back against sexism: Lewd comments, rape come from people who objectify women

Objectification of women must be brought to an end, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said in a powerful speech against sexism Wednesday, in which she mentioned her own experience.

"There is a clear line to be drawn between those who say to a woman who was sexually assaulted that ‘it takes two to tango’ and that she probably uses her sexuality to reach her goals, to a former politician that talks about a colleague and sends her to take pictures so her photograph will be hung on the walls of garages," Shaked said.

The Justice Minister referred to a Facebook status by former minister Yosef Paritzky, which made waves. Shortly after Shaked was appointed to her position, the ex-Shinuy MK wrote: "Wow, this is the first time in Israel that a Justice Minister could star in a calendar that is hung in garages."
