Australian Defence Force - representatives from the Australian Defence Force will be attending to talk about the history of women in the Australian Military and their role today.
We live in a new era. We fight wars like we never have before, we are learning new tactics to use with new alliances against new enemies.
Women are finding themselves in new roles in this new world order. The days of women as peripheral support alone is over. Women transcend the boundaries of wife, sister and mother in modern warfare. But what to?
Women have found new roles as intended targets and victims of a range of injustices across the globe. They have also found new opportunities as aggressors and protectors.
