Every street has a name, and every name has a story and achievements, which affect the lives of all of us. But how many of us really know the characters behind the street names?
Even today, too few women are commemorated on the streets of the city and the municipality is working to correct the injustice and place the women and their achievements at the forefront of the stage. Women who left their mark on society and the Israeli public in various fields.
A week ’in full exclusion’ brings up a miracle of inspiring women. who were recognized and honored by having a street named after them.
