The Military Is Not a Conservative Institution
It Is On the Cutting Edge of Liberal Social Change
Where Is the Military Taking Us Now?
We will explore the following questions and more:
Charges of sexual harassment or violence against women are in the headlines constantly. Is the military encouraging respect for women, or just the opposite?
Do female recruits know that rules regarding women in land combat have changed and put them at greater risk, or are not being observed at all?
s violence against women OK — as long as it happens at the hands of the enemy?
Should the Defense Department give more money and power to professional “Victim Advocates” schooled in anti-male ideology?
Is it necessary to violate the due process rights of men in order to “protect” female “victims,” even with little or no evidence that a crime has been committed?
Are gender differences irrelevant, except when feminists demand special treatment or “Double Standards Involving Women” (DSIW)?”
Are the military service academies going overboard in “sensitivity training” classes that excuse or ignore DSIW (Double Standards Involving Women)?
Do college-age women support feminist ideology and extreme demands for “equality,” even in direct ground combat?
Are feminist attitudes hurting social relationships between men and women?
Sixty-six servicewomen, an unprecedented number, have died in Afghanistan and Iraq. Is this a step forward for women, or a step backward for civilization?
Why is it so hard for some military officials to handle issues involving women?
For answers to these questions, and more, please join CMR on October 12
