Work/ Career

I am currently working on a research project about women serving in the military and combat. I would like to get as much information on the feminists' viewpoint, writings, and articles written by and for feminists. Can you provide me with any suggestions or resources? Thanks so much!

I love this website....I am on it at least once a week and it has helped me a great deal with my research!

Respectfully,

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. A woman by the name of Cynthia Enloe has done a lot of writing on the topic of women in the military--some of this has been for the New York Times and some of it has been for Ms. Magazine--searchings at both of these publications will certainly lead you to more information. The webpages for both publications should be able to find you these references.

Also, there are a few books out right now--one is about the women who fought in Desert Storm--and the other is about Tailhook. Unfortunatley, it's 3:30 am my time and I can't remember the names of these books and/or authors, but try doing a search at Amazon.com. Also, a few months ago, I was on a show with a woman who fought in Desert Storm - if you are interested I might be able to get a contact number for her so you could speak directly with her. Going to the source--in this instance, women in the military--is always a good start.
