This study from the Institut de rechercher stratégique de l'école militaire (IRSEM) by the lieutenant-colonel Arnaud Planiol examines the most important questions related to the integration of women in the U.S. military and the European implications of the debate.
The research is divided in three parts, and presents first the fundamental questions linked to the presence of women in armies as well as the challenges they face when they decide to enter the military. The second part presents the different phases of integration of women in the U.S. military, from the creation of the U.S. to the early 2000s. Finally, the third part focuses on the one hand on the conflicts of the last fifteen years, which prompted an evolution of american mentalities, and on the other hand on the policies of the different armies following January 2013.
