Likud Minister Limor Livnat marked Woman’s Day in Israel on Tuesday by commenting, “Who else can do 10 things at once. Only women! We have the ability to break through the boundaries.”
Livnat was the Education Minister under then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and was a strong nationalist until she backed the policy of expelling Jews from Jewish communities in Gaza and parts of northern Samaria. She said earlier this week she regretted her support for the expulsion.
Currently the Minister of Culture and Sport, Livnat declared, “When I started out in politics, women were almost entirely unknown and the world belonged to men. Women are much better and more successful in many areas.”
She visited Yafo (Jaffa) on Tuesday, where she met women in the arts.
