News Cynthia Enloe to speak on women soldiers in combat

MARLBORO, VT – (March 15, 2013) – Marlboro College presents an informal discussion with Clark University professor of political science Cynthia Enloe on Monday, April 15, at 7:00pm. Enloe will speak in Ragle Hall on the interactions of feminism and militarized culture in women soldiers in the armed forces. 

In her talk, which is free and open to the public, Enloe will question women’s equality in the scope of a growing militarized culture. Additionally, Enloe will map the gains and pitfalls that come with the U.S. Department of Defence’s recent historic decision to lift the ban on women soldiers serving in combat.

Enloe is the author of a number of books, including the The Real State of America: Mapping the Myths and Truths about the United States. She currently serves on the editorial boards of five academic journals, including International Feminist Journal of Politics, Security Dialogue and International Political Sociology.
