Old City bus stop

I didn't realize until I zoomed in on this photo that it's all men sitting in the front and all women sitting in the back. After looking into it, I found that ultra orthodox Jews have had segregated buses, with women in the back, but this has been contested as illegal. Israel's Supreme Court ruled that enforced gender segregation on public buses is illegal, but voluntary segregation is permissible.
