Israel is the one of only a few countries in the world (along with Norway and Eritrea) with a mandatory military service requirement for women.
Women have taken part in Israel’s military before and since the founding of the state in 1948,with women comprising 33% of all IDF soldiers and 51% of its officers, in 2011, fulfilling various roles within the Ground, Navy and Air Forces. The 2000 Equality amendment to the Military Service law states that "The right of women to serve in any role in the IDF is equal to the right of men." As of now, 88% to 92% of all roles in the IDF are open to female candidates, while women can be found in 69% of all positions.
