Knesset members inspect status of female IDF recruits

Chazan, who chairs the subcommittee on the IDF, said:

"The draft is a challenge for girls who must find a way to fulfill themselves and their aspirations in what is a situation of inequality, although the IDF is making an effort to become more equal. Our challenge as committee members is to make the IDF give women complete equality."

She said she was happy to see that new fields have opened up to female soldiers –pilots' courses and eligibility to be sea-going naval officers, for example.
