Join BZD and the author of Women on the Front Line, Debbie Zimelman, as we discuss the role female combat soldiers play in the Israeli army, look at photogenic portraits of female combat soldiers, and hear BZD Shlicha’s personal experiences of being a combat soldier. Stay tuned for a Q&A at the end of the discussion.

Women on the Front Lines is the only book to explore the lives of women who serve in the combat units of the Israeli army. It is the culmination of five years of Debbie Zimelman’s work photographing and interviewing soldiers in twenty Israeli army units. Through color photography and the soldiers’ own words, the book offers a glimpse into the experiences, fears, challenges, and accomplishments of these brave young women. Women on the Front Lines has received wide press coverage, and audiences in the US, Israel, Hong Kong, and Tokyo have already enjoyed presentations about it.

Debbie Zimelman has profound experience in photography and in interviewing combat soldiers. She took a series of photographs of prisoners in the only Israeli women’s prison. Her clients are private individuals and notable publications like Oprah Magazine, The Daily Telegraph, The (London) Evening Standard, and more. In addition to being a professional photographer, she also enjoys teaching others about photography.
