WAAC later became the WAC (Womens Army Corps) later in in 1942 which would let the women be part of the Army instead of serving with it. Women in the WACs worked as secretaries, clerks, and medics. The WACs were only supposed to be used during World War II, but shortages in staff in hospitals and offices caused the war department to request women to re-enlisted. “They became part of the regular army through the Women 's Armed Services
This is a book filled with excerpts from Cornelia Hancock who was a female nurse during the Civil War. In the book it really shows how woman like Cornelia wanted to serve for their nation. Not being able to do the actual fighting, they found other ways to be of service. Hancock faced the prejudices most female nurses did at the time, but still worked tirelessly to assist as many soldiers as possible. Although most of what really happened to Hancock was censored, this book still shows the true heroism woman of that time
Although it is granted that men are stronger than women, it can still be maintained that countless women have tried and passed the issued physical fitness tests. In addition, many would suggest that women lower the moral and unit cohesion as an argument against women fighting in combat. In some units cohesion may not be gained between male and female recruits. However, studies done on Norwegian and Israel armies women bring useful skills to their units and have increases the cohesion within their assigned units. Another argument many believe in is that the military is not appropriate for women due to its traditional gender stereotypes.
1.0 INTRODUCTION Coulston writes in his article Courage and Cowardice in the Roman Imperial Army (2013, p. 14) that the idea of virtus (courage) was a set of qualities that constituted proper Roman citizen behavior”, implying that at least in an organizational body such as the army, common identities was a necessity in order to bind together the troops, an idea which evidently is supported by the same article (ibid). Furthermore the concept of glory is seen in a lot of work from the Principate. In theory a culture’s focuses should have an impact on the people it inhabits, which begs the question of the essay (did Roman military culture deliberately shape the mind of the soldier?) and if this shaping then facilitated the organizational body of the army? To answer this question, the essay is structured into three parts, with the majority of the chapters being in the theory section, the first one titled “What Was the Imperial Roman Army?” the second “Structure of the Imperial Roman Army”, third: “Individual Life”, and lastly “Relevant terms”, which hereafter in the introductory part will be referred to as 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4.

Currently, there are 214,098 females serving the United States military on active duty. The females that serve in the military already has every right as the men do. The females have every right that a man would have if he was drafted, but the females would have the choice to be in that position. There are already females in the military, if the government drafted females they would be taking away the choice of those who do not want to be drafted, this would also cost the government a less tough military. Many women are in the military.
Before the Civil War, women were rarely involved in any part of the war, but during it, women started to help the war effort by becoming nurses, and now by joining the Army. Document 4 is a letter from a war doctor; in her letter, she writes, “my post the open field between the bullet and the hospital...I write letters home for wounded soldiers, not political addresses.” As women like Clara Barton become more willing to help in wartime, they get more opportunities to become involved; whether being a nurse or a disguised soldier. Another example of this willingness is shown in Document 7; it is a photo of Eleanor Roosevelt speaking with American soldiers in the Galapagos Islands. Not everyone needs to serve in order to help with the war. Women like Eleanor Roosevelt play a huge role by lifting the spirits of American soldiers.
The MOS is 31B, Military Police. In the Army the Military Police, or MPs do a lot of different things from MP duties or even CID duties. So from all of this, this paper is going to be about what every soldier has to go through for basic and ait, and the history if the military police corps. The Military Police Corps started September 26, 1941 for the main aspect of order in the army. Its traditions of duty and service establish its solid foundation as recognized professionals in our armed services.
A lot of buzz has been created in the last few years over the word Feminism. Feminism which is all about fighting for equal rights for women and empowering them is often sensed wrong by our male chauvinist or to say male dominated society. However, the discussion is not always for the right reasons. Feminism the word often comes into the discussion for it’s over hyped status in this contemporary society and often people think that women play it as a victim card to their advantage. However, very often people and our society fail to realize that since time immemorial, women have been oppressed and dominated in one way or to the other and not even once for the right reason.
Prior to this war, people had different views of their values such as women had to think twice before taking any decision and they could not think of playing a role of a boss. But the things got a new turn after the end of this war and also the value system changed. People were asked to think from a new perspective.

Nineteenth century America was a time when women were expected to follow the cult of domesticity, a widely accepted opinion at the time. While fathers, brothers, sons, husbands and other male loved ones went off to fight in the American Civil War, women were left behind to take care of the remaining members of the family. “It was in the home that woman’s influence was paramount and her position assured.” For some women, this was enough, however, there were others who were not satisfied with this idea, and felt as though they were meant to become something more. However, there were some opportunities for women to step outside of the social customs and gender roles of the time. In fact, “the Civil War dramatically tested those boundaries of
While American men did fight in the war, others played an important and crucial part in the war. These people were women, African Americans, and Europeans. Often women held low positions in society and wasn’t accepted in the army, but that didn’t stop them. “With their husbands away fighting, some women had to take over as weavers, carpenters, blacksmiths, or shipbuilders” (Doc. 2).
There is still an issue today with equal pay between men, women, and other races. The National Organization for Women fought this same problem in 1966 and NOW are still fighting today. NOW has made an impact on a state level in some states, but they have not impacted the federal level law. The Equal Pay Act of 1963 was made, but even today it is not followed through with. Most will say that a woman cannot put in the same work that a man can.
Throughout the ages women have faced varying degrees of sexism and during the progressive era this was a very prominent issue, women had finally had enough of being treated as second class compared to white males and simply males in general. They weren’t allowed to vote, own property if married, they were extremely restricted in what types of jobs they could get and often encouraged to just stay home, not to mention the large wage gap between white males and white females ensuring that on their own women would be hard pressed to survive. In many of the divorce cases the women were still required to take care of the children even though the male technically had custody. Sexism all though not as prominent today is still a very big issue, ranging
