    Sure, like most counries in the Western world, Israel has much do improve in the field. Don't forget that 50% if the Israeli population are traditional exra-conservative cultures (Arabs marry several wifes, and kill doughters for kissing a boy). But non-the-less: Israel has many women-reporters and journaliste who do not fall into your category and are higly respected (Ilana Dayan, for instance); the biggest political party is lead by a women; Israel is one of the rare counry to have a women as PM in the the 60s-70s, and Israel did not hasitate to get rid of prominent leaders (Mordechai, Kazav, Ramon) who were charged with sexual abuse. So the situation is not that bad as you describe. But than agais, that is your thing.
