Jerusalem, holy city to Jewish, Christians and Muslims, is the oldest in the world. Also old, say old-fashioned, are some of the traditions perpetuated there, such as the women segregation on jewish buses. In this editorial, Israeli fashion magazine Belle Mode raises awareness to this issue through the lenses of Lior Nordman.

Public buses have existed in the Israeli capital of Jerusalem for nearly a century, and those serving the small ultra-Orthodox community (which comprises about 10% of the country’s population) have been segregated for the past 14 years. Yes, segregated — not by race, but by sex, with women being relegated to the back of the buses. As the community has grown and people have moved beyond their isolated neighborhoods, the number of segregated bus lines has increased, and the nation’s liberal majority has pushed back.

Jerusalém: a cidade santa de judeus, cristãos e muçulmanos é a mais antiga do mundo. Antigas também, ou antiquadas, são algumas das tradições que nela se perpetuam, como a segregação das mulheres nos autocarros judeus. Neste editorial, a revista de moda israelita Belle Mode chama a atenção sobre esta questão, através da lente de Lior Nordman.

Os autocarros públicos existem na capital israelita de Jerusalém há quase um século, e nos últimos 14 anos, aqueles que servem a pequena comunidade ultra-Ortodoxa (que engloba cerca de 10% da população nacional) têm sido segregados. Sim, segregados — não pela raça, mas pelo sexo, com a mulheres a serem relegadas para a traseira dos autocarros. À medida que a comunidade cresceu e as pessoas se mudaram para além dos seus bairros isolados, o número de linhas de autocarro segregadas aumentou, e a maioria liberal da nação recuou.
