Controversy about women in the military continues, yet women's
relations with the military go far beyond whether they serve in the
Gender Camouflage brings together a diverse array of authors to
explore the controversy surrounding women's military service, to
examine the invisibility of civilian women who support the
institution, and to expose the military's efforts to camouflage
their support and contributions.
Contributors first consider nurses, servicewomen, military
academy students, female veterans, and lesbians. The focus then
shifts to military wives, women employed by the DoD, and female
civilian military instructors whose work is less visible but no
less essential to the institution. The book also examines the
experiences of women outside of the military, such as "comfort
women" near U.S. bases, women engaged in peacework, and women
workers affected by military spending in the federal budget.
Analytic chapters are juxtaposed with first-person narratives by
women who have actually been there, including a member of the first
gender-integrated class at West Point, the first female civilian
instructors at the U.S. Naval Academy, and an African American Air
Force Nurse Corps veteran.
Contributors include Connie Reeves, Georgia Clark Sadler, Gwyn
Kirk, and Joan Furey.
