A young Israeli girl with glasses and a headband is the first to win the grand prize in Israel’s annual beauty pageant, a major step forward for her cause.
The 16-year-old girl, whose name has not been released, was crowned the youngest winner of the competition, beating out a runner-up from the United States.
Her win was made possible thanks to a $3,000 scholarship from Israel’s Ministry of Education.
The girl was chosen to receive the prize in her hometown of Armon Hanatziv, in the south of the country, which is home to some 200,000 Jewish settlers.
Israel has long struggled with a long-standing issue: the presence of boys and girls in schools.
It was one of the main reasons why Israel’s then-prime minister, Ehud Barak, rejected a request to allow girls to attend the country’s high schools in 2005.
The move led to the creation of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which seeks to ban Israeli products and institutions that discriminate against men and boys.
The Boycott and Divestiture Movement has grown into a worldwide movement against Israeli policy.
Last year, Israeli women started wearing a headscarf to school, prompting protests and calls to ban all such clothing.
In 2014, Israel enacted new gender-neutral laws that allow girls and women to wear dresses and headscarves.
The headscarfa and the new laws have been welcomed by many women, including some from the Boycotters’ movement, but there are concerns that such changes could be discriminatory.
“We think that it’s a good start.
But we want to see the implementation of the laws, the policies that will be implemented to allow boys and men to participate in the education system,” said Shira Shaked, a teacher in the Jerusalem district of Sderot.
The Israeli government is trying to improve gender relations.
The education ministry announced in July that it would be expanding the gender gap among teachers.
It has introduced a new policy requiring that students in high school must have a male teacher.
