“What’s a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Combat Zone?” Challenging the Persistence of Gender Bias in Combat Roles”

Authors: Donna Smith, Ph.D. (Dissertation Chair and Faculty) and Daniel Roberts, DM (SAS Alumni)

Abstract:  Conceptually, when most of us think of a workplace, we imagine some type of office, service, or manufacturing environment. However, one workplace that is often overlooked is the military. Historically, women have participated in various aspects of the U.S. military and, within these male-dominated branches, women are usually associated with operations-type, non-combat careers in safe areas of the world. However, recent U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) policy changes now permit women to engage in active combat, thereby opening over 91,000 jobs to female in the military (2015). The focus of this article is to provide greater clarity to challenge persisting stereotypes and assumptions about the suitability of women in combat roles.
