JERUSALEM, Israel (CBSDC) – Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men can breathe a little easier knowing that they don’t necessarily have to make eye contact with “immodest” women.
In the latest attempt to help prevent ultra-Orthodox men from scoping out scantily-clad women, the Committee for Purity in the Camp is making available semi-transparent stickers, non-prescription glasses and head scarfs to help block men’s vision of overexposed women. The Times of Israel reports that the ultra-Orthodox technology has been made available in neighborhoods in Jerusalem and elsewhere in Israel.
Media reports indicate the vision-prevention products come with encouragement for customers. There’s a message attached that assures customers that they shouldn’t be ashamed to use the technology to prevent seeing “immodest” women in public.
The sale of these products is not the first time the committee has dipped into this market. The committee continues to sell portable screens for airplanes that block out women from entering a man’s line of sight.
