Pnina Tamano-Shata tells Channel 12 that she wrote to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today to protest the marginalization of women in the new government.

MK Tamano-Shata, a member of the opposition National Unity party and a former minister of immigration and absorption, cites an all-male meeting of 10 coalition party heads and other senior coalition members hosted by Netanyahu yesterday.

She also says there is “not a single woman” set to serve as the director general of a government ministry.

“We won’t accept this,” she says. “We will fight this in the Knesset.”
