Today, Women are the fastest growing American Military demographic group. American women have served in the military both formally and informally throughout the history of the United States of America. It was July 12, 1948, when President Harry S Truman signed Senate Bill 805, the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act into law, enabling women’s service to the nation to be recognized as permanent regular members of American Armed forces.
Since this time, continuous advancements have been made to recognize women’s leadership in today’s United States Military Armed Forces: In 2018, there were around 16.3 million male veterans and 1.65 million female veterans. 1 in 69 women in this country is a veteran. Statistically women veterans are younger, more diverse, and more likely to have served recently than male veterans.
- Women comprise 16% of today’s active United States Military.
- 363,000 women are serving Active Duty and Reserve Members.
- Nearly 20 % of new recruits today are women.
