CAPT LAUREN SERRANO, USMC: talks two articles she’s written — “Why Women Do Not Belong in the U.S. Infantry” & ” To Get Out, or Not to get out? Gender Crisis in the Marine Corps”

THIS IS A GREAT INTERVIEW!

Captain Lauren Serrano, USMC joined us to discuss her experiences writing and speaking about gender issues in the Marine Corps and the U.S. Military.  Our frank discussion addressed :

(1)  Individual Marine and public reaction to her first article “Why Women Do Not Belong in the U.S. Infantry

(2) Her discussions with DOD PAO-types as she prepared of a CNN Military Forum where she was specifically asked to address the gender issue with President Obama

(3) Her motivation for writing her second Gazette article published in the July 2017 edition entitled “To Get Out, or Not to Get Out?: Gender crisis in the Marine Corps” — and her policy recommendations for retention of career oriented female Marines who desire to have children

(4) By virtue of pushing for higher physical standards for women, is the Marine Corps pushing women who desire to be mothers and career Marines out of the Marine Corps?

(5) Why the issue of gender is such a difficult for Marines to discuss frankly in open forums

Captain Serrano is a great example of a leader who speaks her mind in an articulate manner.  She also offers all Marines substantial issues to ponder.

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!
