Abstract:

The dependence of the Armed Forces on women as the solution to the manpower gap created by the All-Volunteer Force, coupled with the impact of the womens liberation movement, prompted an examination of the existing barriers to the full utilization of women by the Services. For analysis, these barriers are broken down into three categories those caused by sociological and psychological factors which affect attitude, those created by Congress in the Laws of the Land, and those created by the Services in their individual regulations. The results of some studies of sexual differences are presented. These results tend to dispel the myths upon which many of the barriers to women have been based.
