Gender Inequality: The Overlooked War between Women and America's Military and Police Forces

Sara Brazier, Gonzaga University

Abstract

Regardless of the progress that this country has made, gender inequalities are still very prevalent today. This is especially true with regards to our main tactical careers, law enforcement and military services. Because of these inequalities, women must work harder in order to be seen on the same level as their male counterparts. This study looks at the collective works of Karl Marx, Max Weber, Simone De Beauvoir, and more in an attempt to explain why women are treated in such a way. Data are used to detail the debates around the issue, viewpoints of men and other women in these services, and court cases and legislation that define tactical female professionals. In summary, this study suggests a variety of policy recommendations that should be implemented to local, state, and federal governments in order to address these gender inequalities and help women to achieve their dreams.

Regardless of the progress that this country has made, gender inequalities are still very prevalent today. This is especially true with regards to our main tactical careers, law enforcement and military services. Because of these inequalities, women must work harder in order to be seen on the same level as their male counterparts. This study looks at the collective works of Karl Marx, Max Weber, Simone De Beauvoir, and more in an attempt to explain why women are treated in such a way. Data are used to detail the debates around the issue, viewpoints of men and other women in these services, and court cases and legislation that define tactical female professionals. In summary, this study suggests a variety of policy recommendations that should be implemented to local, state, and federal governments in order to address these gender inequalities and help women to achieve their dreams.
