TITLE

The Politics of Constructing the American Woman Soldier

ABSTRACT

More American women fought in a war zone during the 1990–91 Gulf War than had fought in any American war since the Second World War. The 40,000 white, black, Asian-American and Hispanic American women who were deployed to Saudi Arabia during this nine-month military build-up amounted to four times the number of American military women sent to Vietnam over the entire decade of US involvement in that country. Three-fourths of those women were deployed by the Army. Only 3 per cent of Canada’s forces sent to the Gulf were women (though women make up 10.6 per cent of Canada’s entire active duty force), while Britain’s units were 1.5 per cent women (again lower than the 5 per cent level of its total military). France deployed 13 women in its 10,000-soldier force. Kuwait included 9 women among the 250 Kuwaiti volunteers sent to the US for military training in 1991.1
