Women likely to be left out of Security Cabinet

As coalition negotiations wind down, it appears unlikely that any women will be appointed to senior ministerial positions or be members of the Security Cabinet, despite the government’s adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 to involve more women in matters of peace and security.

The UNSC adopted Resolution 1325 in 2000, calling for women’s "equal participation and full involvement in all effort for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security" and Israel was the first UN member state to include part of the resolution in its laws.

In December 2014, the Israeli government adopted resolution 1325 in full, but as coalition talks come to a close, it appears that the new government will not implement that decision.
