Abstract:

The purpose of this effort was to review the research conducted in The Technical Cooperation program TTCP member nations on the women in their armed forces. Because of the similar roots and social evolution of these countries, issues of mutual concern are inevitable. Thus, research and development performed in one members military has great applicability in the services of the others. The research papers were organized into five topical areas Enlistment, AttritionRetention, Attitudes Impinging on Assignment, Interpersonal Factors, and Utilization and Job Performance. A short historical overview and a description of the more important sex-specific laws and regulations were included to foster understanding of the antecedent events and constraints affecting the utilization of women in the armed forces of Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. The role of women in the societies of each of the TTCP countries is currently undergoing redefinition and the impact upon the military is noticeable. Research issues growing out of this fact and common to all four countries were obvious throughout the review. Author
