You might expect to find one in Saudi Arabia or in other parts of the
conservative Middle East, but freewheeling Tel Aviv has just got Israel's
first women-only department store.
At first glance it looks like any other department store. Women browse
busily through counters of make-up, household goods, clothes and underwear.
But look again, and you'll spot the difference.
There are no bored-looking husbands or boyfriends waiting around. In fact,
there's not a single man in sight. Welcome to Israel's first women-only
Sometimes I have to yell at them, sometimes I push them, but I keep them
No men are allowed up the escalators into this new mall in Tel Aviv's
ultra-Orthodox neighbourhood of Bnei Brak. Any male over the age of 10 who
does inadvertently stray upstairs is swiftly removed.
"I chase them out," says 29-year old Wana Borka, the shop's security guard,
an immigrant from Romania who once worked undercover for the Taiwanese
She bridles at the dress code imposed on her - a long, loose skirt in
keeping with the style of the area - but relishes the task of ensuring the
store remains a women-only zone.
"Sometimes I have to yell at them, sometimes I push them, but I keep them
out," she says.
No men are allowed to go up the escalator
And the customers appreciate the unique environment of a modern department
store specifically designed for traditional, religious women.
"I feel much more comfortable here because you don't have to worry about who
is looking at you, " says Adina Slavin, an immigrant from Australia. "And
the other modern malls are all full of clothes that aren't suitable for
religious women like me."
The new store is owned by a 33-year old businessman, Yehuda Amar, who has
previously been involved in building apartments.

"Business is good, and it's better because it's women-only," he says. "It's
what the people in this area want. They can look at the lingerie and make-up
without worrying about men lurking behind them."
Mariam Mashiach, out shopping with her 16-year old daughter for a new hat,
plans to return. "I'd definitely recommend it to my friends," she says.
"Hats are a sign of modesty for married women, and here you can try them on
in peace without worrying that men will look at you and your uncovered
Manager Pnina Greenberg says the mall provides an important social service
in an area where the men spend most of their day in prayer and the women
have little opportunity to spoil themselves.
"I see the satisfaction on their faces and the light in their eyes," she
says. "Women are women wherever they are. It's in their nature to shop."
Israel's million-strong ultra-Orthodox community, with its centuries-old
traditions, is proving to be a lucrative market for businesses selling 21st
Century services and appliances tailored to meet their religious strictures.
Already, there is a "kosher" mobile phone, approved by the country's
rabbinical authorities, which blocks telephone numbers for sex and dating
And those behind Israel's first women-only store believe that "shopping Bnei
Brak" may well set a trend in the country.
MARRIAGE IN EUROPE IS OLD HAT. WOMEN DON'T NEED MEN ANY MORE.
Submitted by John Rooney
Headline: In Europe, unmarried parents on rise
Byline: Peter Ford Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor
(PARIS)Germany's Bild newspaper has called it "the Steffi Graf trend." And
though a pregnant Ms. Graf ended up marrying Andre Agassi a few days
before their son, Jaden, was born, Bild has a point.
Across Europe, the number of children born to unmarried couples has
risen sixfold over the past 35 years to nearly 1 in 3 of all babies,
altering the face of the European family beyond recognition - and
beyond recall - say demographers and social analysts.
While most governments have regarded the transformation as simply a
sign of the times, some experts are sounding the alarm.
Given the relative fragility of de facto unions - and the social
implications of single-parent families - "the rise in births outside
marriage is a real cause for concern" warns John Ermisch, an economics
professor at the University of Essex in England.
If Prof. Ermisch's findings that de facto British unions break up more
quickly and more often than marriages apply throughout the continent,
points out Dr. Peter Brierley of the Christian Research group in
London, the increasing numbers of single-parent families in Europe will
mean governments will have to rethink policy on a wide range of issues.
More housing will be needed for more families, more childcare
facilities will have to be provided, more thought will have to be given
to employing single mothers, and more attention paid to the particular
social and educational needs of youngsters brought up by only one
parent. All this, with many European countries already faltering under
the strain of generous state welfare programs.
Reflecting different social, religious, and economic traditions that
have shaped the 25 countries in the European Union (EU), the number of
births outside marriage varies widely from one end of the Continent to
In Sweden, the figure is 56 percent. In Greece it is 4 percent. In
between come France with 48 percent, Britain at 42 percent and Germany
at 28 percent, according to the EU's official statistics branch,
In Germany, one survey shows only 38 percent of women favor marriage
But nearly all nations share two salient factors in common: the numbers
have skyrocketed in recent decades, and the increase is due to children
born to co-habitating couples, not to single mothers.
"Marriage is no longer considered an indispensable preliminary to
welcoming a child" found a recent French parliamentary report on the
family, which noted that "free unions" have become much more common -
and not just for very young people.
In Germany, a recent Federal Statistics Office survey reached similar
conclusions: only 38 percent of women and 30 percent of men see
marriage as a necessary part of living together.
In Britain, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) found in 1999 that
cohabiting couples accounted for 24 percent of the men living in any
kind of partnership and 25 percent of women - double the rates
prevalent in 1986.
"People these days don't expect their marriages to last, so they think
'why get married in the first place if weddings are expensive and
divorce complicated?' " says Dr. Brierley, whose organization provides
information to help British church leaders make informed policy
And where there are cohabiting partnerships, there are babies. "One of
the important engines behind the rise in non-marital childbearing,"
said the ONS study of European trends, "is the rise in cohabitation
that has occurred, particularly since the 1980s, in many European
Why a sixfold jump in unwed parents since the 1970s?
Ermisch, the University of Essex professor, sees the origins of the
trend in the contraceptive pill, which began to enjoy wide popularity
in Europe in the 1970s. "It used to be very costly to delay marriage,"
"Either you didn't have sex or you risked having an illegitimate baby.
The pill made delay less costly," he says, and as live-in couples
formed - and firmed up - increasingly they decided to start a family.
At the same time, suggests Dirk Konietzka, coauthor of a German study
carried out in 2003 by the Max Planck Institute for Demographic
Research, "much of it has to do with the modernization of womens' role,
and also that women who have children can work. There are fewer reasons
to get married."
Changing social mores in societies where religion and churches have
suffered declining influence have also had an impact. "It is clearly
apparent in all the countries that those who became mothers within
marriage were more religious than their counterparts who had their
first child in other contexts," says the ONS report, drawing on United
In France, where church-going is rare, "society draws no distinction
between couples that are married and those that aren't," points out
France Prioux, research director at the National Institute for
Demographic Studies. "There is no social disapproval."
Nor are there any legal differences in France between married and
unmarried couples when it comes to matters such as inheritance or
parental rights. (In Britain, however, unmarried fathers have no legal
parental rights if they separate from their child's mother.)
This year's French parliamentary report expressed no concern about the
surging trend toward families headed by unwed parents. It pointed out
that 92 percent of children born to such couples are acknowledged by
both parents by their first birthdays, which suggests that they are
born into stable unions.
Evidence emerging in Britain and France, however, suggests that de
facto unions are not as stable as those bound by a legal contract, and
that in their wake they leave more children living with only one
parent, with all the social, economic, and educational disadvantages
that is widely acknowledged to bring.
Ermisch's research, for example, has found that the average duration of
a cohabiting union in Britain (though growing longer year by year) is
between three and four years - though this is partly explained by the
fact that 40 percent of them turn into marriages.
Nonetheless, he calculates, only 35 percent of British babies born to
cohabiting parents will live with both of them until their 16th
birthday. Seventy percent of children born to married couples will do
so, Ermisch says. Children born in cohabiting unions will spend an
average of 4.7 years of their childhood with only one parent, compared
with 1.6 years for those born in marriage, he says.
While the number of informal partnerships that turn into marriages
varies considerably from one country to another (in Italy, Sweden,
Austria and Switzerland it is around 70 percent, while in France it is
only 32 percent, the ONS found), Ermisch's figures appear to find some
echo in France.
In France, free unions may break up at twice the rate of marriages.
There, Ms. Prioux says, only 10 percent of marriages break up within
the first five years, compared with 18 percent of free unions. That
explains, she adds, why in 1999, 7 percent of 5-year-olds born to
married couples had seen their parents break up, compared with 15
percent of children of unmarried couples.
Interestingly, however, that ratio narrowed considerably for French
children who had been born 10 years earlier: 20 percent of 15-year-olds
born to married parents had seen them divorce, while 25 percent of
those born to unmarried parents had experienced their break-up.
"Those informal unions that last seem to last much longer nowadays,"
suggests Prioux, though she says insufficient research has been done to
fully explain the figures.
Whichever way the statistics break down, however, "the trend towards
more children being born outside marriage ... will continue unless
there is a radical change of heart in the whole of society towards the
issue," says Brierley. "I don't think you are going to stop that."
