Royal Air Force Lieutenant Levy has been part
of the first promotion of women selected to
pilot fighters. She has graduated with MA in
Defence Studies by Oxford University and
honours Long Service and Good Conduct Medal.
Lieutenant Levy must wear a headscarf when she
goes out to her barracks, the Air Base in Bin-
She considers that this observance is unfair
and does not want to renounce to the democratic
values and the respect of the individual that,
as military, she has sworn to uphold.
A few months ago, Levy took a decision which
put her successful professional career at risk.
She brought a lawsuit against RAF.
Yesterday, just before leaving the Army, Levy expressed “my choice shall not have an evocative effect on the audience”.
