WOMEN IN THE MILITARY: WORLD WAR II Bonny Lou Boltz History 102: U.S. History After 1877 Professor Tara Simpson September 15, 2012 Before World War II, the role of wife and mother was the prevailing view of women and many occupations were reserved for men. Military minds stonewalled women organizations and anyone who suggested that women should be in the military. The opinion throughout history was that women and war didn’t mix because women were valued as child-bearers and society did not believe women were strong enough to carry heavy weapons in battle or smart enough to understand tactical war strategies.

We know this is not true because women have done everything in this world that men have including dangerous adventure sports yet they considered to be lower than men .Their talents are not as recognized as men’s talents are and they are mostly looked upon as not being fit for the same jobs as men are. These issues are presented in the texts examined in this essay. The song “What it feels like for a Girl” by Madonna and the essay “Fifty one percent Minority” by Doris Anderson are about Gender Inequality and how women are treated in society. The song by Madonna describes the pressure women feel to conform to social norms of politeness and subservience and the essay by Doris Anderson is about discriminatory practises that are done against women in Canada.

We will look at the lack of women to grow into the top positions, the history of women in the military, and whether they really want to be equal to men within the military. The Beginning Documentation of women in the United States military goes as far back as the American Revolution. While during this time, 1775-1783, women were used as nurses, care givers, cooks, servers, laundry workers, and to disrupt the enemy. (Highlights, n.d.) At this point in the women’s history they had still not obtained equality. The Equal Rights Movement for women did not begin until 1848 while the Revolutionary war was some sixty years earlier.
Despite the occasional positive examples of women in roles that defy stereotype, too often they are forced to adhere to stereotypes or are even ridiculed for failing to adhere to stereotype. An example of this is the catch-22 that Hillary Clinton, the first serious female contender for the U.S. presidency, faces. She has been criticized for lacking feminine qualities; however, if she did display stereotypical feminine traits, she would be accused of lacking the strength and composure required for the job of president. Generally, we associate women with jobs such as nurses, secretaries, and maids. These kinds of jobs most people would consider as a caring and supportive jobs that are fitting to the stereotypical feminine nature.
