Abstract

Starting from the gender mainstreaming perspective introduced by the Un1325 resolution, the paper is focused on the analysis of the “new gender military regime” within the Armed forces by considering the policies and the point of view of Italian military women participating in ISAF mission in Afghanistan, interviewed during a field research. The main aim is to explores the gender model from inside the quasi all male military institution, by considering the military women experience and their (self)representation of femininity and masculinity. The sense of being a (female) soldier is not far from the traditional warrior model and the participation in missions even works as accelerator of female assimilation, described in terms of «females becoming like males».
