ConferenceInternational Society for Military Ethics Conference 2016
Abbreviated titleWomen Serving in the Armed Forces: Shaping Modern Values and Beyond
Country/TerritoryUnited States
OtherTraditionally, women have been excluded from many roles in the military, most especially combat roles. In recent years, however, that has all changed, first unofficially, and finally officially: women have been de facto serving in combat roles for the last decade or so, and the first female candidates have been or in all probability soon will be admitted to Marine Corps Infantry training and the US Army Ranger School.

​ISME is pleased to present a conference on all aspects of this historical development.
Questions that may be discussed could include:
- The right of women to serve in such roles
- Gender related moral dilemmas: case studies
- Embracing diversity: balancing practical considerations and modern values
- Equality and equity in promotion
- Moral injuries during and after war: impact of gender on healing
