The Israel Defense Forces: First for Women -Nick Hopkins
The Israeli military is the most progressive in the world in terms of gender equality. Almost one-third of the force and 50% of its officers are female. Some 92% of roles are now open to women.
In the UK, only 13% of the armed forces are women, while there are only slightly more in the U.S. army (13.4%).
