About the Book

From silents of the early American motion picture era through 21st century films, this book offers a decade-by-decade examination of portrayals of women in the military, juxtaposed with the realities faced by their contemporaries in uniform. A range of genres is explored, along with films created by today’s military women about their experiences.
Analysis of laws regarding women in the service is provided, along with discussion of the challenges they faced in the push for full participation as service members, and of changing societal attitudes through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
