Women and the Military. A WEAL Fund Kit.
Women's Equity Action League Educational and Legal Defense Fund, Washington, DC.
Designed to provide useful information on women in the military, this kit is intended for students, teachers, guidance counselors, parents, policy officials, women's studies programs, librarians, and those interested in the changing role of women. The first section includes a paper on Common Misconceptions about Women in the Military and issue papers addressing such topics as women and the draft, women in combat, and minority women in the military. The next section provides brief descriptions of each branch of the service (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard) and comparative information on ranks and policies toward women. Ideas and strategies for effecting change in the military as well as information about organizations that may provide assistance are also included. Additional resource materials are identified in two bibliographies: a special annotated bibliography on women in the military for young readers (Women Are Patriots, Too!) and another for guidance counselors (Selected Bibliography on Choosing a Military Career), which has some annotations. A listing of key addresses to write for information on military subjects is also provided. (YLB)
