FEMALE MARINES RESPOND, THEY WANT “ACTIONABLE CHANGE”: LtCol Austine Brown Rawllins, USMCR PART 2

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!

LtCol, USMC (ret)

Kate Germano, LtCol USMC (ret) and the COO of the Service Women’s Action Network, discusses the daunting task of changing mindsets in the Marine Corps.

Specifically we discuss:  (1) raising the bar on women from recruiting, to pool requirements prior to shipping to Recruit Training… Kate contends the Marine Corps can do MUCH better across the board; (2) adopting the OCS Model of including a female platoon in male companies at MCRD so that from the start males Marine see females Marines in leadership roles and female recruits would benefits from being included in the environment they will live and work in during their careers.

We discuss if UCMJ needs a specific article which addresses the transmission of intimate images that were obtained consensually with the expectation of privacy.

Kate Germano is a strong advocate for woman and certainly doesn’t shy away from this debate.
