Feminist Army

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%).

Israel enforces conscription! It's different to volunteering to serve in those places.

Of course Israel has a draft...but I would redirect you to those stats...just because women are drafted doesn't mean they will encounter freedom of mobility and a welcoming view of their talents. I stand by the title of "Feminist Army."
