The lecture describes how the Israeli Defense Forces fought in Gaza in the summer of 2014, and is based on the booklet of soldiers' and officers' testimonies from Operation Protective Edge. The booklet compiles the testimonies of dozens of soldiers across various units and areas of combat.

This lecture is based on the booklet of women's testimonies published by Breaking the Silence in February 2010, which describes military service in the Territories from the unique perspective of female soldiers who served in a range of roles and units. Using segments of Tamar Yarom's documentary "To See if I'm Smiling," and other testimonies gathered by Breaking the Silence, we discuss the role of women within a military unit and in the implementation of military rule overall.
