About this title


Gender-based problems occur more often than we realize. Women are four times as likely to be excused from assigned deployments, often using pregnancy and greatly impacting our military readiness. More alarming, however, is how many women file false allegations of rape or sexual harassment to deflect attention away from their own misconduct. Since Aberdeen, the role and place of women in the military has managed to dominate public polic discussions about military readiness. Military training is a process of transformation. Feminists and traditionalists can agree that "Women's ways of knowing" are fundamentally different from that of men. This Woman's Army shows how the military honored gender differences--even before feminist theory considered the importance of gender socialization. The move to integrate women into unisex training and combat roles has not only compromised the readiness of military units, but the well-being of the women who served in them. The military man now competes on a less than even playing field, under the added burden of career-ending, even if unfounded, harassment charges. By peeking into these gender issues, deYoung makes it clear that gender-based conflicts are in need of serious restructuring if the active duty Army is ever to become a vital, positive alternative, for America's young men and women.

About the Author:

The author served as a chaplain to three male combat battalions and to the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment when it stood up as a rapid deployment force in 1993. She has appeared on CNN, the Joan River's Radio Show, and many national radio discussions about gender issues in the military.

Her articles have appeared in Texas and national newspapers. She debated her most recent co-authored work, Women in Combat at American University with air force colonel, Lorry Fenner. CSPAN aired this debate in October, 2001.

This Woman's Army provides an account of numerous professional clinical experiences that will provide insight into the string of sexual harassment and family murder cases that continue to plague the United States Army.
