Four young women preparing for their army service have petitioned the High Court to order the IDF to open all combat roles in the army to women, including opportunities to be accepted into elite commando units. They said in their appeal that excluding women from certain roles goes against the principle and law for equal opportunity.  KAN's Naomi Segal asked Dr. Idit Shafran Gittleman, a researcher at the Israel Democracy Institute and an expert on gender equality in the IDF, how receptive she thinks the High Court or military leadership would be to the appeal of the petitioners.
