Gendered Bodies: Personnel Policies and the Culture of the British Army

This research focused on culture and gender in the British Army.

The research, funded by the ESRC and MoD, investigated the ways in which military culture as a ‘whole way of life’, and as a set of gendered social practices, influences the development and implementation of policies aimed at women’s participation in the Army. It looked at a range of policies developed over the past three years (prior to 2001), including those that were currently under review.
