Joseph Dunford of the Marine Corps , wanted to keep certain direct combat positions such as infantry and machine gunner closed to women. The decision to officially permit women to assume combat roles was due to the fact that women had served in combat roles from the beginning of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Women have been injured, killed, and awarded some of the highest honors. Two women have received the Silver Star, Sgt. Over 10, combat action badges have been awarded to women who served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Marine Corps study released in September   found that women in unit created to assess how female service members perform in combat were significantly injured twice as often as men, less accurate with infantry weapons and not as good at removing wounded troops from the battlefield, according to the results of study produced by the service.
The research was carried out by the service in a nine-month long experiment at both Camp Lejeune, N. About Marines , including women, volunteered to join the Ground Combat Element Integrated Task Force, the unit the Marine Corps created to compare how men and women do in a combat environment.
They include the M4 carbine , the M27 infantry automatic rifle and the M , a single-shot grenade launcher mounted to rifles. The research also found that male Marines who have not received infantry training were still more accurate using firearms than women who have. There may be some social explanations for why unit cohesion is lower in mixed gender groups. As noted by many female soldiers, the way that they are viewed by male soldiers is often detrimental to their participation in the unit. This means that she is careful to not spend too much time with any one male soldier, and this often has an isolating effect.
There are worries about romantic or sexual relationships developing, potentially inappropriate fraternization , or that a woman might get pregnant. Dave Grossman , author of On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society , Israeli soldiers reacted with uncontrollable protectiveness and aggression after seeing a woman wounded.
Grossman also notes that Islamic militants rarely, if ever, surrender to female soldiers, lessening the IDF' s ability to interrogate prisoners. On the other hand, Iraqi and Afghan civilians are often not intimidated by female soldiers.
However, in such environments, having female soldiers serving in a combat unit does have the advantage of allowing for searches on female civilians. Children and women are more likely to talk to female soldiers than to male soldiers. Firstly, these strategies demonstrate that it becomes the responsibility of the women to keep themselves safe instead of challenging the rape culture within the military.
This situation re-creates the female body as vulnerable and weak in relation to the strong, male body. Some reports show that women in the military are three times more likely to be raped than women in the general public;  furthermore, women in Iraq are more likely to be attacked by one of their own than by an insurgent. Those found to be affected the greatest were Native-American women, followed by Hispanic and African-American women. A documentary called The Invisible War has been made on this lawsuit and topic.
Because the perpetrator is typically in a position of higher command or is one whose job is to protect the woman, this causes an increase in traumatization.
Reports also demonstrate that women in the military are challenging the idea of their responsibility in cases of rape and sexual assault: In the Royal Norwegian Navy became the first  navy in the world to permit female personnel to serve in submarines, exemplified by the appointment of the first female submarine commanding officer, Captain Solveig Krey aboard the first Kobben class submarine on 11 September, Women serving alongside men on submarines creates the need to segregate accommodation and facilities, the U.
Navy policy allowed three exceptions for women being on board military submarines: In October , the U. Also, the availability of qualified female candidates with the desire to serve in this capacity was cited. It was noted that women now represented 15 percent of the active duty Navy  and that women today earn about half of all science and engineering bachelor's degrees. A policy change was deemed to serve the aspirations of women, the mission of the Navy, and the strength of its submarine force.
In February , the Secretary of Defense approved the proposed policy and signed letters formally notifying Congress of the intended change. After receiving no objection, the Department of the Navy officially announced on April 29, , that it had authorized women to serve aboard submarines. The first group of U. In , it was announced that will be the first year women will serve on U.
Female Sailors from all communities and ratings will be afforded the opportunity to be among the first to join the U. In May , it was announced that three women had become the Royal Navy 's first female submariners. On November 15, , the first Argentinian female submarine officer Eliana Krawczyk , disappeared in the Atlantic Ocean after the Argentinean Navy lost contact with ARA San Juan submarine after a reported failure in the electric system.
In , the French Minister of Defense announced the first experiment of women on submarines. In fact, the next generation of French Submarines, which are expected to be delivered in  , are designed to welcome women. In the Bible a woman who is named Deborah who was Prophet and wife of Lappidoth, was asked by Balak to go with him to war with Jabin the king of Canaan who reigned in Sisera; this king was later killed with a peg and hammer by a woman named Jael who was Haber's wife.
A study by Jennifer M. Silva, a sociologist of culture and inequality her goal is to investigate the relationship between systems of inequality , found that the female cadets saw military training as an "opportunity to be strong, assertive and skillful" and saw such training "as an escape from some of the negative aspects of traditional femininity".
The female cadets also believed that the ROTC program was "gender-blind" and "gender-neutral". The study claims that female cadets "were hyper-vigilant about their status as women performing tasks traditionally seen as men's work and often felt that they had to constantly prove they were capable. Silva's study found gender playing a role in how cadets perceive leadership, quoting one female cadet: Of the female cadets Silva interviewed, 84 percent said they did not want a military career as it would interfere with being able to get married and have children.
A study conducted by Matthews et al. The results showed that military cadets were less approving of women being assigned to certain military jobs than non-military students.
