Women in NATO Militaries - A Conference Report

Document Type

Abstract

From April 9-12, 1981 seventeen women convened in Amsterdam to describe and analyze women in militaries, with our special focus on women being recruited into the militaries allied in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The workshop, 'Women in NATO Militaries', was sponsored by the Feminism and Socialism Project of the Transnational Institute (TNI). Women activists and researchers came from Norway, Canada, Britain, West Germany, Holland and the United States. In addition, though Israel is not a member of NATO, an Israeli participant was invited because so many of the presumptions about how and when women are included within a government's regular armed forces derive from the perceived experience of the Israeli military. © 1982.
