The chairwoman of the Knesset Committee on the Status of Women and Gender Equality, MK Aida Touma-Sliman (Joint List), praised on Monday the decision by the Tel Aviv municipality to temporarily revoke the business license of Allenby 40, the nightclub where a young woman was filmed in October having sex on a bar with multiple men while others looked on.

The nightclub, she said, ”has turned sexual and mental exploitation into a source of profit.”

”Particularly during a week in which we mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, we must remember that we must fight the existence of such places with the same severity that we fight places where the prostitution industry operates,” she said.

Touma-Sliman, who had written a letter to Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai with regards to ”Allenby 40”, urged all municipalities ”to do the minimum that is necessary to protect their residents and use all the means at their disposal to bring about the closure of similar establishments.”
