The Gender Gap in the Armed Forces: Exploring Female Representation Across NATO Countries
The United Nations formally placed the relevance of women’s participation in peace and security matters on the agenda through Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security in 2000. Increasing the participation of women in the armed forces is a tool for implementing Resolution 1325 and may improve operational effectiveness. This paper summarizes existing research and literature about recruitment and retention and explores variation of female representation in armed forces across NATO countries, with special attention to the Norwegian case.
