The Changing Roles of Women in the Military - A 5 Part Radio Series

NPR has an interesting 5 part series on the changing roles of women in the military.

With the need for women to be available to deal with female civilians, and with too few troops being sent to Iraq, women have been placed closer to the frontline than ever.
