This booklet provides up to date information and data on women in the military.  The booklet is a chronological history of women in the US military over the past 70+ years from 1948 when, through passage of the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act, women first won the chance to serve in the regular armed forces, right up to the present day as women begin to integrate ground combat units and occupations. Included in the booklet are sections on the historical background of women’s service; a chronology of key legal and policy changes made since 1947; demographic information on women veterans and women currently serving in the five active duty and seven National Guard and reserve services; an update on how ground combat integration is proceeding; a chronology on the services attempts to come to grips with the epidemic of sexual assault and harassment since 1979; and a bibliography of reports and studies concerning military women and veterans by the Services/Executive Branch or mandated by Congress since 1990.
