Egged finally starts posting ads with women again
After a four-year-long legal battle, Egged buses in Jerusalem began displaying advertisements that feature women's faces on Sunday.And good to see it's finally borne fruit. The whole notion that pictures of women are "immoral" in every way is offensive, especially when those Haredi moonbats don't seem to think ads with men aren't idol worship. They also fail to comprehend why it's wrong to vandalize private property they didn't pay for. Now it's time to fight back.
The advertisements feature a mix of women from Jerusalem – secular, religious, hareidi and Arab – despite concern over backlash by extremist hareidi elements.
Some fringe elements within the hareidi community view the portrayal of women's faces as immoral, and occasionally tear down posters or other publications which feature such pictures.
The campaign was mounted by the Yerushalmim movement, at the initiative of Deputy Mayor Rachel Azaria, who heads the Yerushalmim faction.
