RARA-AVIS: women in combat

A great story from today's Washington Post magazine on women in combat. Since the subject of women's toughness has been raised on this list, it seemed appropriate to let people know about it.


The article covers a wide range of issues from women's ability to kill in combat, their interactions with men, acts of heroism and dealing with PTSD. Many of these issues are relevant to us, since hardboiled protagonists can be affected by them.

It's a long-ish article, but well worth the reading.
