This book is about the women who serve the military as wives and
those who serve as soldiers, sailors, and flyers. Comparing wives
and warriors in the U.S. and Canada, it examines how the military
in both countries constructs gender to exclude women from being
respected as equals to men. Written by a wide range of scholars and
military personnel, the book covers such contemporary issues as the
opening of military academies to women, the opening of combat posts
to women, the experience of being a wife in the two-person career
of an officer-husband, sexual harassment, turnover of women in the
armed services, and U.S. and Canadian policies allowing gays and
lesbians to serve in the military. Part of an emerging feminist
scholarship in military studies, this work also explores how gender
has been constructed to maintain the status quo and women's
narrowly defined roles as the dependent helpmates of men.
