Abstract:

Numerous states have passed gender integration legislation permanently admitting women into their military forces. As a result, these states have dramatically increased women's numbers, and improved gender equality by removing a number of restrictions. Why do states abandon their policies of exclusion and promote gender integration in a way that women's military participation becomes an integral part of military force? By examining twenty-four NATO member states, this book argues that civilian policymakers and military leadership no longer surrender to parochial gendered division of the roles.
