Status of Gender Integration in the Military: Analysis of Selected Occupations
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis book examines the degree to which women in the armed services are represented in occupations open to them and determines whether certain factors hinder or preclude them from working within their military specialties. The authors analyzed all military occupations and performed a detailed analysis of ten specific occupations. Results show that success in integrating women is mixed, with female representation increasing in half of the ten specialties studied in detail. The authors conclude that in the specific occupations analyzed, women do about as well as men in training, that the nature of work does not affect gender representation as much as service restrictions on the numbers of women entering each occupation, and that some skills have assignment limits that make it difficult for women to have a viable career. This work should interest defense specialists, as well as all those concerned with recruiting, training, and gender studies
