This video from the USA says about itself:
Civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks is remembered as a courageous woman whose defiance in the face of segregation helped inspire the architects of the civil rights movement and set an example for generations to follow.
She saw the inherent evil in segregation and she had the courage to fight it in its common place, a seat on a bus.
From daily Haaretz in Israel:
‘Israeli Rosa Parks’ receives death threats after refusing to move to back of ultra-Orthodox bus
By Ophir Bar-Zohar
Tanya Rosenbilt, the Israeli woman who refused to move to the back of the bus when told to do so by an ultra-Orthodox male passenger last month, said Wednesday that she had received several death threats.
Rosenbilt, hailed as the “Israeli Rosa Parks,” filed a complaint to the Yarkon District police after she had received threats through the phone, email, and Facebook.
Rosenbilt made headlines last month when she refused to let an ultra-Orthodox man dictate where she can sit on a public bus traveling from Ashdod to Jerusalem. When she refused to move to the back of the bus, the man held the door open and would [not] allow it to move for approximately 30 minutes.
When other passengers began to complain about the delay, the driver called the police. The policeman who arrived on the scene spoke with the man and then also asked Rosenblit to move to the back of the bus. When she refused, the man who had been holding the door alighted and the bus continued on its way.
