Women In the Military: Embracing Opportunities and Challenges

 

The face of the US military is changing. Today, women make 
up more than 14 percent of the nation’s armed forces, and 
the Department of Defense recently announced its intent to 
open up over 14,000 combat-related positions to women. 
What new opportunities do women have in today’s military? 
How do women succeed in a still predominately male 
environment? And how have their lives, families, health, and 
the transition to being veterans been impacted?
Festival: 2012
