Indy retracts claim that ‘the number of female MKs is decreasing’

Last week, we posted about a March 14th Independent op-ed by Elana Maryles Sztokman, leader of the Israeli women’s party, Kol Hanashim, titled “The sad lesson I learned when I ran for Israeli parliament”, included the claim that “the number of women [MKs] is decreasing”.

In our complaint to Indy editors, we provided sources to show that the March 2nd elections actually saw a record number of women (30) elected to the Knesset.

MK Ayelet Shaked (GPO)

Editors upheld our complaint and retracted that specific claim from the article.
