  1. Protection of Women- Society has a preconceived notion that women need to be “protected”. This idea goes back to looking at gender norms and women generally being domestic and having a male figure provide for the family.  Similarly, people think women shouldn’t fight because they need to be protected for their families. See article here: http://www.forbes.com/sites/dailymuse/2012/05/10/women-in-the-military-why-cant-we-serve-on-the-front-lines/
  2.  Behavioral/emotional gap: Society also has a preconceived notion that women are more emotional/frail/etc. There is a great research article from the veteran’s association that discusses emotional tolls on women who were in the military and results in an extensive study. See article here: http://www.hsrd.research.va.gov/publications/esp/women-vets.pdf
  3.  Gender Gap within seniority: Many front line members who are high up are men and they are noted to make the situation hostile towards women because military work is often seen as a “mans” job. Examples of this is in the airfare blaming women for not being able/competent enough to save a pilot. See article here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/head-strong/201405/breaking-the-glass-ceiling-women-in-combat

I also recommend reading this article on gender equality (focuses on women… kind of an oxymoron) for further understanding. http://scholarship.law.georgetown.edu/fwps_papers/81/

I'm in the class called Social Problems. I'm talking about the three main perspectives such as functionalist, conflict, and Symbolic Interactionalist?
