Camouflage Isn't Only For Combat
Gender, Sexuality, And Women In The MilitaryeBook - 1998
Draws on surveys with some 300 female military personnel to explore how women's everyday actions, such as choice of uniform, hobby, or social activity, involve the creation and re-creation of what it means to be a woman, and particularly a woman soldier. Examines pressure to conform to gender role expectations, how these pressures manifest themselves on a daily basis, and what strategies women employ to influence the way they are perceived.
