Doron Matalon’s Scandal
In December 2011, Doron Matalon gained national publicity after a sex segregation incident on a Jerusalem bus. She said a 45-year-old Haredi man demanded she move to the back of the bus, threatening her and calling her a prostitute, but she refused.
The incident was covered extensively by the Israeli media, and she became a symbol of women’s empowerment. Matalon pressed charges and the man was later convicted of sexually harassing her.
