Das Militär als der zweite wichtige Untersuchungsaspekt meiner Arbeit hat Stoff für viel kontrovers erachtete Debatten gegeben. Einerseits sind Frauen wie Männer zum Wehrdienst verpflichtet, andererseits herrschen auch dort patriarchale Werte. Dieses männliche Verständnis führt häufig zu Diskriminierungen, sogar zu Missbräuchen, denn der Dienst wird von vielen Männern stets als „Identitätsgebot“ verstanden. Nach dem Sechs-Tage-Krieg wurden zunehmend viele Stellen für weibliche Soldatinnen geöffnet – sie dürfen z.B. in Kampfeinheiten dienen –, und dennoch sind sie immer noch oft nur in den gleichen Bereichen zu finden.
Als dritten Punkt interessierten mich die rechtlichen Aspekte. Noch zur Zeit des Britischen Mandats vor der Staatsgründung Israels wurde das Gesetz über die Gleichberechtigung der Frau verabschiedet, doch gleichzeitig wurde ein Rabbinatsgericht eingeführt. In vielen Bereichen sind beachtliche Fortschritte erzielt worden, doch bezüglich des Familienrechts sind immer noch große Benachteiligungen Frauen gegenüber festzustellen. Strengorthodoxe Schulen beschränken z.B. den für Mädchen gedachten Lernstoff, doch auf der anderen Seite sind einige Förderungsprogramme entwickelt worden.

Translating the Queer specializes in the dissemination of queer wisdom, thoughts, and representations all through Latin the USA, a migration that has been followed by means of concomitant procedures of translation, model, and epistemological resistance.
