LtCol Austine Brown Rawlings, USMCR

LtCol Austine Brown Rawllins, USMCR joins the program to discuss her involvement in a private Facebook Group called “Actionable Change” — formed in the wake of the “marines united” online behavior issue that has gained the nation’s attention — and what that group and a related group  which is open for all to join (Actionable Change Allies) wants.

Like many, LtCol Rawllins was surprised to learn that the Marine Corps, prior to recently, had never targeted and recruited women.  She discusses the need for change in recruiting and modifications to recruit training.  Her strongest comments during the two part interview are reserved for leaders who fail to lead at the “point of confrontation” and for advocates who are “protecting women” from the disabling rigors of the combat arms MOS’s.

A GREAT interview!
