LEADERSHIP SUCCESS STRATEGIES of U.S. Army Women General Officers

VIEWS: 7 PAGES: 7

The act made women (other than nurses) eligible to serve in the active duty military in times of peace as permanent regular and reserve members of the Army, Navy, Marines, and the then recently formed Air Force.2 It also set limits on the number of women who could serve in the Armed Forces. Because enlistment in the new all-volunteer Army was low, the Department of Defense concluded that widening roles for females would ameliorate troop shortages and fill vacant positions.4 President Gerald Ford signed Public Law 94-106 in 1975, opening the formerly all-male U.S. service academies to female applicants, and thereby creating conditions in which women officers would lead men.5 Public Law 94-106 also deliberately expanded leadership positions beyond those previously allowed under the Women's Army Corps.
