From Haaretz daily in Israel:
Hundreds board segregated bus lines to protest ultra-Orthodox exclusion of women
Men and women launch demonstration against segregated bus lines and against exclusion of women from public sphere.

Hundreds of men and women boarded gender-segregated buses in Jerusalem and Ramat Gan on Sunday, in protest of the exclusion of women from the public sphere and against the segregation of men and women in ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods.
Despite the friction between the two communities, the protest on board the buses went over relatively quietly.
The organizers of the demonstration requested that the protesters gather in central points in Jerusalem and Ramat Gan so they would not be drawn into provocations.
Throughout the evening, there were two incidents in which bus drivers refused to allow the activists to board the buses. In line 354 from Ramar Gan to Be’er Yaakov, the problem was only solved after police intervention, and on line 402 from Ramat Gan to Jerusalem, the bus driver threatened the activists and journalists that he would break their cameras.
