“The Daily Survey: Should Haredi women run in the elections?

Local elections are just around the corner [1]. Party lists are being built and names are being thrown in the air. In addition to the fateful question of the next mayor, the candidates for a place on the city council, including Haredi female contenders [2], are presented one by one.
Is it proper? What do you think?”

0202 Editor’s Notes:
[1] Municipal election across Israel are scheduled for the 30th October 2018.
[2] Traditionally, women in Haredi society do not run for public office or hold any official leadership position. Recently, there has been a growing, albeit still small, number of Haredim who wish to change this practice and allow women to run for political positions.
