4 religious women in Beit Shemesh sue city over "modesty coercion"

Four women in the city with a Haredi problem are fed up with discrimination and have sued the municipality over their failure to set things right:
Four religious Jewish women from the city of Beit Shemesh have filed suit against the city for failing to prevent an extremist sect"s pressure on women to dress according to its own strict rules of modesty.

The suit centers on several signs put up by sect members declaring that "immodest" women are prohibited to walk in the area. One of the plaintiffs told Yediot Aharonot that when she took down one of the signs, a man affiliated with the sect saw her and began throwing stones at her.

"There"s a threatening atmosphere here due to the repeated violence against women who the attackers think are not dressed appropriately," she said.

The city is being sued for failing to remove the signs. The women are seeking 25,000 shekels in compensation for emotional distress.
The women are doing the right thing to sue. And the police have to step up patrols in those areas to keep those extremists out of the neighborhoods.
