Project

Women and the Use of Force

Overview
The Academy organized two workshops to explore the role of women in developing and implementing national security policy. Participants examined feminist views of war, political theory that deals with women and the use of force, and psychological and sociological perspectives on sex roles relating to women’s participation in the use of military force. The resulting book explores the gender gap in public opinion polls and stereotypical perceptions of women’s use of force. It also analyzes women’s roles in the use of force as members of the military and as policy-makers.
