Product description


Modern armed forces must represent the societies they defend if they wish to remain relevant in the modern world. Jo Stanley's expertly-contextualised book explains how the modern Royal Navy successfully integrated women into  seagoing service, a key example of transformation that has benefitted the Navy, the nation and all those involved. --Andrew Lambert, Laughton Professor of Naval History, King's College, London

A thoroughly researched account of the parts played by women in the service of the Royal Navy from the Middle Ages to the present --The Spectator

The author gives an authoritative and dynamic account of the vital role women in naval uniform have played in the shaping of today's maritime forces it is recognition long overdue. She asks the questions, skilfully provides the answers and tells it as it is. For anyone with an interest in things naval and women in particular this is an inspirational book which deserves a place in everyone s library. An excellent sequel to her previous book 'From Cabin Boys to Captains'. --Commodore Muriel Hocking RD* Royal Naval Reserve, the first and only woman in command of the RNR and the navy s first ever female commodore.
