I am now part of telling that story...
The Defence Select Committee Inquiry into the experiences of many women and some men, in the Armed Forces is due review in 2023.
The MP Sarah Atherton announced an inquiry, in 2021. Over 4000 women shared their experiences. The Inquiry reported in July 2021 and the review of progress is due in November 2023. The MoD delayed responding to the recommendations, successfully blocking necessary changes to legislation. The MoD short term 'success' has led to plunging recruitment and retention numbers in the armed forces.
With the inquiry still trying to work with MoD to enact change, I am now seeking further collaborations with other authors and academia, To find a way to retain the research for future generations - I look forward to updating readers on progress - if you would like to know more, drop me a line.
We are actively pursuing sponsors at the moment and have some interest - it is too early to share details, but watch this space. No stories will be included, without individual consent.
