Congressional Commission on Military Training and Gender-Related Issues

 (1998 - 1999)


Principal Investigator


Dr. Handy's duties included designing and producing the literature review section for the Commission's final report.  This work is an inventory and documentation of the range and magnitude of knowledge that exists on the subject of gender integration in the U.S. military. The literature review's scope is comprehensive to include the broader topics of women in the military, military training, civilian law enforcement, gender integration and cross-national gender integration in non-U.S. militaries.  Dr. Handy also produced three separate studies/reports at the request of the Commissioners: Gender Integration of Militaries Outside of the United States, Women’s Integration in Non-Traditional Work Sectors and Executive, Legislative and Policy Chronology of Women in the U.S. military.
