What could this blotted out advertisement have been about?

This is a picture I took with a camera phone on Sunday, March 3, 2013, in the Kiryat Yovel neighborhood in Jerusalem. It's not a Haredi neighborhood, though there are some who live in the area, and seeing this poster on a billboard across the street from Rabinovich Park that looks like it was torn and spray painted over, I wondered what it was intended for. The part that raised my eyebrows was the caption "haadarat nashim" which translates as "exclusion of women". I think it was supposed to be about a painting of some women from 1899, but it's still not clear. Was it intended as a protest of male Haredi discrimination against women? I don't know, but if it was, then someone is guilty of vandalism against free speech and the right to protest gender discrimination.

Update: I found out, thanks to other remains I spotted in the area, that it was a copy of an 1899 portrait by Paul Gauguin, Two Tahitian Women. A pretty intriguing choice for a possible protest statement.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
