Abstract

This memoir by Sandra Perron, Canada's first female infantry officer, describes her experiences serving in the Canadian Forces, including the harassment she suffered during training and her deployments to Bosnia and Croatia. The account describes her fight against a system of institutional sexism. Though repeatedly identified as top of her class throughout her training, she was subject to harassment by her male colleagues. [McNally Robinson]
