Israeli Women

Daughters of Rachel – Women in Israel

By Natalie Rein

Penguin 182pp £1.95 order from our bookshop

Women in Israel are usually seen by the world as being among the most liberated, but this is far from the truth. Unfortunately the cover picture of a beautiful young woman in combat-dress, backed by a stern Golda Meir, epitomises the very myth of liberation which the author is at some pains to explode in the text.
