Session of the Week: Ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell - American Historical Association
Current events are better understood through historical context. Such is the case with annual meeting session “Ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell: Lessons Learned from Integrating Minorities and Women in the U.S. Military,” today’s “Session of the Week.” Scholars in this session will present papers on race relations in the military in the 1970s, sex discrimination in the Army Nurse Corps in the 1950s, the challenges of integrating women into the U.S. military, and updates on the end of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy.
