Women in the Military: Where They Stand

Eighth Edition


"Military women serving in war zones are such a common sight in world-wide media these days that their presence is little remarked. In both Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) and Operation Iraqi Freedom, military women from the US and other countries have shown the mental and physical toughness needed to perform well under fire, to defend themselves and their comrades with courage, and to endure the conditions inherent to life in a combat zone."


WREI is pleased to announce the release of the new eighth edition of Women in the Military: Where They Stand.  This new edition includes information on active duty, reserve and Guard forces and on women veterans as well as updated statistics and a chronology of important policy and legislative milestones.

For those who choose to download the complete electronic version of this Women in the Military: Where They Stand, Eighth Edition, we ask -- but don't require -- that you contributel $5.00 -- more, if you can afford it -- to defray a small part of the costs of researching and writing this important publication.



Thank you!
