What kind of a bizarro world do we live in when International Women’s Day is celebrated by the Israeli parliament by giving female Knesset members self-defense lessons?
I am all for female empowerment but I have to wonder whether the legislative branch became so toothless that the message it wants to convey to the female citizens can be broken down to:
- men are coming to harm you
- the country cannot/would not defend you
- better learn to scream ‘no!’ and prepare for a fight
