Businesses across Israel are still struggling to prove their businesswomen are businesswomen, even if they’re working in the field of finance or insurance.
This, of course, makes them even more vulnerable to discrimination.
On Thursday, The Jerusalem Times reported on an investigation by a female employee of a Tel Aviv-based financial institution who complained to her employer about a culture of sexism.
In an interview, the woman, whose name has been withheld for fear of retaliation, said she was told that the institution was a place for men to talk about their affairs.
“We’re talking about the salary, the health, the money.
The way they talk about it, that is not something we want to discuss,” she said.
She added that she was often pressured to stay in line by her male colleagues.
“I was told not to ask my colleagues to look for opportunities in the future, to just wait until the moment came when they would have the money to do what I was doing,” she continued.
The woman is a business professional woman in her mid-30s, and has worked at the institution for four years. “
In the past I have been told not even to speak to my male colleagues, but I feel like the pressure has only grown in the past few months.”

She told The Times that she has been the target of verbal abuse and threats since she first joined the firm in November 2015.
While women make up just 10 percent of the country’s workforce, they account for nearly 60 percent of all corporate fatalities, according to the government’s annual report on corporate deaths.
The report notes that a woman who is pregnant is at greater risk of being killed.
In 2016, the government set aside an additional 6 billion shekels ($13.6 million) for the first half of 2019 to help combat gender-based violence against women and girls.
In the same year, a law was passed to make it easier for female employees to file complaints against supervisors for sexist behavior.
The Women and Business Center of Israel, an organization that advocates for women and their business interests, welcomed the initiative, but said it has not yet been implemented in the way it should.
“The issue is not new, and there are many women who have faced this in their lives,” spokeswoman Ayesha Fadnani said.
In some cases, they have to ask for money to make the decision.””
Women are still not able to make a business decision without the full support of the business partner.

According to a report by the Center for Gender-Based Violence at the Israel Democracy Institute, there were 3,716 women killed by men in Israel in 2017.
Women made up nearly 70 percent of victims and were more likely to be killed by intimate partners or in other violence-related incidents.
