Abstract : The incorporation of the females into the U.S. armed forces has been an evolutionary process, spanning more than 200 years of U.S. history. Since 1972 the number of women in the military has increased significantly. During this time, our military services have been confronted with recurring issues and questions concerning women in the military. This study discusses sexual harassment, examines reasons for the persistence of the problem and identifies ways to prevent and eliminate this unacceptable behavior. It concludes that despite well-intentioned efforts at high levels in the Department of Defense to eliminate gender discrimination in the work place, sexual harassment continues to be a serious problem in all the military services.
