    For the author's information, Rosa Parks was not asked to take another equivalent seat at the back of a bus. She was asked to give her seat to a white passenger. That is, she was not just segregated: she was also discriminated on a racial basis, a victim of pure and simple racism in a racist southern state of the 1950's USA. Here we have 'only' an example of gender segregation, which of course can easily be settled by telling the haredis to set up their own private bus services if they wish to segregate their own women. They have of course no right to force their rules in public Israeli transports.
