Women are increasingly taking up mainstream roles in the military. In parallel, allegations of the sexually abusive treatment of servicewomen are widespread in the UK and around the world. Joanne Mackowski, a PhD student as part of the Business School partnership with the Royal United Services Institute, researches defence change and gender issues.

Joanne recently appeared on France24's, The 51% programme, which examined how, for many French servicewomen, it is the 'barracks not the battlefield' that became their personal warzone. On the programme, Joanne talks through the key elements of this issue, including the need for decisive leadership to instigate policies and entrench practices that demonstrate the unacceptability of such behaviours.
