Introduction: “How important it is to celebrate our Hero’s and She-roes.” - Maya Angelou This timeless quote by Maya Angelou speaks the truth about gender differences and how important it is to recognize both genders and celebrate their presence in the different components of life; especially in our military. Through research this paper brings together the importance of gender differences and the gender accommodations that are lacking within the military. Background and History The military has a long history of acceptance with women working in the armed forces. History dates back to the American Revolution (1775-1783) when women served as battlefield nurses, water bearers, cooks, laundresses and saboteurs. (Women in the military, 2008) Women working in these roles continued through the Civil War and the Spanish-American war.
From being Rosie the Riveter, an integral part of the United States victory in World War II to women who should “do their duty” by returning to their homes, where they could serve their husbands and “repopulate the ranks” (Women 's History in the U.S. | National Woman 's Party). This was the social setting for women after the war, one that did not sit well with the feminist movement. The revolutionary women in this discriminatory time fought for their right to express their sexuality without hypocritical judgement from others, the right to choose their own destiny for their own lives, the right to self and to discover who they are as an individual and not as a gender and not how to be a perfect housewife as they were taught but how to be themselves.

This advancement in the military allowed both men and women to fight alongside each other and defend their land. Canadian women even had their own mascot, ‘Ronnie, the Bren Gun Girl,’ which inspired more and more women to get out of their houses and encouraged them to partake in jobs that portrayed them as strong independent women. By 1945, near the end of the Second World War, 1/3 of all Canadian women were employed in war efforts under the National Selective
This idea about masculinity and how it relates to power and leadership can help bring reason as to why some women take on the Queen Bee approach. Women must stay in the middle. “If women conform to the gender role by being feminine they fail to be ‘managerial’, but if they conform to the managerial role they are no longer feminine” (Mavin, 2008, p.77). Women have so many expectations that society makes it hard for them to be successful and seen for their strengths. Queen Bees act in a way that will differentiate them from other women.
Amelia Earhart is best known for being the first women to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, but could she have also been paving a way for women rights without people even noticing it. While she did advocate for women rights Ms. Earhart was able to prove women can be as tough and women should not be confined to what society thinks they should be.

Fuller was aware of her capabilities, and wanted all women to comprehend the amount of potential they all have. According to the article, Biography Online, “With growing confidence as a writer, Fuller also returned to themes of female emancipation and the role of women in society. In 1845, she published – ‘Women in the Nineteenth Century‘ – It investigated the role of women in society and how they could play a greater role in society.”1 Fuller had a goal, and that was to be known for her intelligence, and the desire to spread the faith in women. I admire Margaret Fuller for what she has done to contribute to the society I live in. If it weren 't for her, maybe people wouldn 't see women as the strong and independent individuals we are capable of being.
The 1980 film, The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter, was able to open many eyes to how important women were in our entry to World War II.

The nature of the Second World War blurred the line between the conventional and unconventional roles for women. As the war progress, the idea of total war, where all people are mobilized behind the war effort, even if they cannot hold a rifle or fire artillery, became regnant. Women left the home and were thrust into roles which were previously held by men and with which they were not familiar, but nonetheless contributed substantially to the war. In the west, women took a more auxiliary role than in the USSR. The departure of men from the factories and to the front lines created a vacuum, which women were sucked into.
