Barbara Streisand Slams Orthodox Jews For ‘Forcing’ Women Segregation

Reuters reports: U.S. entertainer Barbra Streisand on Monday took a swipe at Orthodox Jews in Israel who compel women to sit in the back of buses and assault them for following religious rituals traditionally reserved for men.

“It’s distressing to read about women in Israel being forced to sit in the back of a bus or… having metal chairs hurled at them when they intend to peacefully and legally pray. Or women being banned from singing in public ceremonies,” she said.

The Oscar and Emmy-winning actress and singer, who is Jewish, was speaking at a ceremony at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem where she was awarded an honorary doctorate.
