That is actually the problem, because they become a law unto themselves and then seek to expand that into mixed cities. I don't think any city should be allowed to be completely Orthodox. Israel is beginning to understand that the economic lot of women is very much the issue. If you are vulnerable economically, there is not much that you can do to protect yourself from ignorant people who completely misinterpret religion to incite hatred. The only way the Orthodox will learn is to break up their cities and make them normal cities, then they will feel themselves vulnerable and would not dare to act as they do. Because this problem is going to get worse, thanks to this coalition which does not really represent the will of the people, G-d forbid. If G-d made me according to His will, well, He made me according to His will, not according to some straitjacket Orthodoxy tries to stick you in. It means I can be who I am. Two oxen have to be equal in order to carry the cart.
