Abstract : Women have played an ever increasingly important role in the United States Army enlisted force over the past few decades. Their proportional strength has risen from 2.6 percent in the early 1970's to 15.5 percent in the present day. While the opportunities for women to serve have grown substantially within the combat support and combat service support occupations, the growth of women has been concentrated mainly in the traditional fields of administration, supply and services, medical and transportation. As the Army moves forward with its transformation to the Stryker Brigade and to the Objective Force Unit of Action design, along with instituting reductions in the administration and logistics force structure, we must assess the potential impact this transformation may have on the continued success of integrating women into the enlisted force.
