Abstract

The paper analyses the unrestricted opening up of all careers and career groups to women in the armed forces of Germany. Its aim is to demonstrate that the process of integration of women into the armed forces has begun but has not yet been completed. The way in which the integration of female soldiers is organised makes sure that the male character of the military forces is not called into question; instead of that a facade of gender equality is built. This involves the selective perception of the organisational field, the failure to set any goals with regard to integration, the treatment of women as a deviation from the masculine norm, and the protection of the masculine organisational culture. However, it is argued that the gendered substructure of the armed forces will change nevertheless. This is due to two reasons: firstly to the new tasks assigned to military forces, and secondly to the micro-political struggles within the military organisation.
