Should an Ultra-Orthodox Woman Perform on the 'X-Factor'?17 June 2023
A haredi (ultra-orthodox) woman with a viral video made it through to the next round on the Israeli version of X-Factor. Due to the religious ban on women singing in front of men, she has performed anonymously and wearing sunglasses. Annie Orenstein, founder of Spotlight on Women, and Delia Spiers, an Orthodox woman singer-songwriter, join VOI's Molly Livingstone in-studio to weigh in on the performance and the ban. Delia also performs a beautiful acoustic number.
