Women ‘penned off’ behind male colleagues during Mike Pence's visit to the Western Wall

A spiritual visit by the US vice-president, Mike Pence, to Jerusalem’s Western Wall has been overshadowed after female journalists were forced to stand behind their male counterparts in a fenced-off area. While women and men are separated by the ultra-Orthodox Jewish authority that runs the plaza, both sexes are normally able to look into each other’s section. During previous visits by Donald Trump and Barack Obama, sexes were divided although female reporters and photographers were afforded an unobstructed view. Images shared by reporters on Tuesday showed men in front on a raised and covered platform, blocking a clean line of sight
