    "I am simply wondering why and wherefore this "exclusion of women" festival is taking place at the moment. ": Well never before has the situation been so bad. Men leaving military ceremonies. Separate public benches in bet shemesh for men and women. In maya shaarim I used to be able to walk on the same side of the street as my wife without her being attacked for being on the men's side of the street. More and more buslines that make women sit at the back of the bus. and the list goes on. But I'm sure Merav knows these things. I can only guess that she is trying to make a point. I can't imagine the dramatic shift we are seeing against women in this country escapes her notice. "There are only a few men who discuss discrimination against women or attempt to change the situation, but most men do not consider it to be their problem." I know very few women (actually none) who do anything about discrimination against women in this country either. It is an "apathy" that knows no gender. I know of organizations of professionals that are women dominated (i.e. teachers, nurses) that never attempt to take on these issues and settle for the status quo. And of course there is human nature, how many contribute to any cause that they are not directly effected by. In short this article is rhetoric and I think Merav would be better off addressing issues head on instead of feigning boredom. If the issue is getting attention now then it should be seen as a window of opportunity to be taken advantage of.
