Militarized Femininity in Israel

Main Article Content

Abstract

Israel's history of conflict with its neighbours and the Palestinians, along with its militarized society, has created a militarized femininity that assigns narrow roles to Israeli women in both the armed forces and in civilian life. This militarized femininity serves to perpetuate a gendered social order that severely limits the rights, freedoms, privileges and opportunities of Israeli women. Israeli women thus have difficulty advancing themselved in the armed forces and in society.
