Increasing numbers of women are now deployed to the front line and are taking leadership roles in the military around the world. This panel, chaired by TIME Europe Editor Catherine Mayer and including Colonel Marian Lauder MBE, war photographer Alison Baskerville, bomb disposal expert Major Nicola Roberts and LSE Professor Mary Kaldor, asks what effect this has on modern warfare, whether more women should join the forces, whether all military posts should be open to women and what happens when they’re back on civvy street?
