Women on Billboards Being Defaced in Jerusalem

There’s high vandalism of posters depicting women in Jerusalem, and mayor of Jerusalem Nir Barkat is cracking down on the those responsible.

Billboards and ads featuring women have become a rare in israel’s capital because they are quickly defaced and torn down by “strictly-Orthodox” activists.
Since this has become consistent, advertisers are now falling in line with their wishes, but many see that this is plain wrong.

Additionally, Israeli fashion companies, whos target audience are females, have been declining images of women in order to protect their billboards from being defaced. Gal Gadot’s whole upper body disappeared from Castro’s latest campaign, along with other female models.

“We must make sure that anyone wishing to publish pictures of women will be able to do so without fear,” said Mr Barkat.
