The actress was exposed to the news that the State of Israel would not join an international convention to combat violence against women as part of a coalition agreement, was horrified by the decision and criticized the new government

Anya Bookchain shared last night (Wednesday) with her 128,000 followers on the social network Instagram what she thinks about the coalition agreement between the Likud party led by Benjamin Netanyahu and the religious Zionist party led by Bezalel Smotrich, according to which the new government that will be sworn in today (Thursday) will not approve the country's accession to the The Istanbul Convention", an international convention of the Council of Europe that aims to combat violence in the family, and against women in particular. In a particularly angry post she wrote from a family vacation she is taking in India, she did not spare criticism and sharply attacked the sixth Netanyahu government.

"I try very hard not to, but every now and then I go in to catch up on what's happening in Israel, and every time I read a new unfortunate statement," Bukstein wrote at the beginning of her remarks against the background of the news item in question.

"But this? The fact that Israel does not join the Istanbul Convention, which should oblige the state to address and enact laws on violence against women, is a disgrace!!!" she cried from the text.

"And don't talk to us about personal security later!" she added angrily.

"The new government just said out loud that women are not of interest to it! (Not that we didn't know that)", he said, apparently following exposure to news reports that were published recently and noted the small number of women who will serve in the new coalition and the request to enshrine in the law that separates women from men at public events Discrimination will not be considered.

"Violence exists in all sectors, and there is no more important issue than this!", she interrupted and asked to clarify that this is not a political issue.

"Dear women," she addressed her daughters towards the end of her words.

"We are more than half of the public in Israel, don't forget that! Sign up for that," she demanded, mentioning the enormous female power.
