Women and Gender Perspectives in the Military

An International Comparison

Edited by Robert Egnell and Mayesha Alam
Foreword by Melanne Verveer
Women and Gender Perspectives in the Military compares the integration of women, gender perspectives, and the women, peace, and security agenda into the armed forces of eight countries plus NATO and United Nations peacekeeping operations. This book brings a much-needed crossnational analysis of how militaries have or have not improved gender balance, what has worked and what has not, and who have been the agents for change.

The country cases examined are Sweden, the Netherlands, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Australia, and South Africa. Despite increased opportunities for women in the militaries of many countries and wider recognition of the value of including gender perspectives to enhance operational effectiveness, progress has encountered roadblocks even nearly twenty years after United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 kicked off the women, peace, and security agenda. Robert Egnell, Mayesha Alam, and the contributors to this volume conclude that there is no single model for change that can be applied to every country, but the comparative findings reveal many policy-relevant lessons while advancing scholarship about women and gendered perspectives in the military.

Review

"Women and Gender Perspectives in the Military is a rich and diverse collection of research on the fits and starts of gender integration in militaries worldwide. It is engaging and accessible, a must-read for those interested in learning how (and if) women are included in many of the world's leading militaries." — Laura Sjoberg, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Florida
