A ‘lack of empathy’ for women and men is driving military dress-ups
Posted February 14, 2019 07:16:08 Military dress-up is often a part of the men and women’s uniforms, but there is a lack of empathy for women, according to a report.
In an article published in The New York Times, author Teresa Greene said that the military’s dress-downs have been an “institutionalised practice” that targets women and girls.
She said that this is “not a good idea” and that it “gives men the power to control the way women dress”.
In a video interview with The New Yorker, Ms Greene said: “They’re telling us to dress like a man, but if you’re a woman, you have to dress in a dress.
And if you wear a dress, you’re going to be treated like an accessory, you don’t matter.”
Women are told to wear what’s on our chests and legs and we’re told to be afraid of what we wear and to be ashamed of what’s in our bodies.
“In the article, Ms Green also said that “military dress-down culture” was a result of the “failure to understand” women and children.
The report, entitled ‘The military’s Dress-Down Culture’, has been produced by the advocacy group Girls Surviving Sexual Abuse and provides insight into the gender dynamics at all levels of the military.
In the video, Ms Greenberg said: I started researching the dress-change issue in 2014, as I saw the way it was handled.
There are women who are forced to wear a military uniform for hours on end.
I watched the soldiers who have their feet bare on the ground while the men are dressed as if they’re in a warzone.
There is a lot of fear and uncertainty, and that’s been a constant over the years, which has created an environment that is unsafe.
She added: When the girls are out on patrol, the military sends them home with their own clothing.
They have to do that to be safe.
I was also surprised to see the way the military dresses them up.
I felt a lack, not of empathy, but of contempt.
In response to the report, a spokesperson for the Pentagon said that it would continue to address “these issues”.
In response, Ms Grimes, the author of the article who was also interviewed in the video interview, said: In a culture of uniform-shaming and fear-mongering, women are told they are worthless and worthless women are being treated like objects in a patriarchal culture.
“When women are expected to follow their husbands’ orders, we see them dressed as a distraction, as if this is the only way they can protect their bodies from the elements. “
The military dress down culture is a direct result of an outdated and racist culture that has allowed men to dominate women,” Ms Grimes said.
“We must confront the institutionalised dress-reduction practices that continue to affect women across all levels, including in the military.” “
‘Women are not to blame’ for dressing up in military uniform Female soldiers and women who dress up in uniform for work or training have become the targets of abuse from their male colleagues, Ms Granger said. “

In her video interview Ms Grimes described a case in which a female soldier in her unit was attacked in her home by her husband.
The incident involved the husband kicking her to the ground, then pulling out a knife and stabbing her.
Ms Granger added: He wanted to cut off her arms and legs, so he used the knife on her arms.
He used the weapon on her head.
I thought she was crazy.
The husband had called her a slut.
But I didn’t realise until years later, when I was a senior enlisted woman in the Army, that it was him who had been doing this.
The Army does not respond to requests for comment about these cases.
In a statement, the Army said that while there is “no excuse for this type of behaviour”, the “duty to preserve and defend” is one that should be respected.
The US Army does provide a range of opportunities to participate in active-duty activities.
Ms Grimes’s report also highlights the importance of education for soldiers.
It says that in many ways, women and non-combatants in the US military are the “sole reason that the US Army is still an important force for peace and security”.
Ms Grimes says the Army needs to do more to address the dress and grooming of soldiers and non combatants.
“I think the Army is really doing a lot,” she said.
She adds: The Army needs more people who are in the public eye, who are speaking out about this issue, and who are educating the public about how to dress for active duty.
