Default The role of women in the IDF

Hey,
Iīve to do a presentation about: Women in the IDF - Are they as loadable as men?

I want to give them first an impression about the role of women during the six day war and the yom kippur war. This leads me to my next point, the Caracal batalion.
I hope you can help me, because I couldnīt find much informations.

Thank you very much! :)

The history of women in the IDF is easy to find documentation on. They have had integral roles in every war in the history of Israel.

In the past few years they have adopted ever more demanding leadership roles in mixed fighting units such as Caracaol. During my own personal experience in the IDF, as recently as last summer, the leadership these women provide is indistinguishable from the quality of male leaders in similar roles.

Hey Rafi,
Yeah I know they had integral roles in each war in the history of Israel but I canīt find documents about what they exactly did.
I also requested informations on the IDF homepage but this could take a while.
