Abstract

Armies no longer count female officers in their ranks. Dissolved, training centers and schools reserved for young girls volunteering for a military career. But training continues. Since the 80s, they have been integrated into the great schools, pursue the same careers as their male counterparts, and reach star rank. The history of their elders is recent; a few decades. The path was not easy. The doors were narrow, it took many generations to climb the entire hierarchy. Courageous, available in peacetime as in wartime, in metropolitan France as well as in all operational areas, and in uniforms sometimes little flattering, they led a patient struggle to change the status, slay misogyny, fight for regular titles and carrying arms. And especially to learn. In cadre schools and training centers, the training of young volunteers has faithfully followed the evolution of their status up to opening the doors of the military schools.
