Why a Think Tank Puts Teen Girls in Command of Military Operations
October 12, 2019
October 12, 2019: Though women have made a lot of progress in recent years, especially in the military and defense sectors, there are still very few women in senior positions in the U.S. military-industrial complex. Only a third of the senior positions at the Department of State are women, and less than a fifth hold such positions at the Defense Department. That's why a Cold War-era think tank agreed to put women in command of a large wargaming exercise. Were women able to prevent an all-out nuclear conflict on the Korean Peninsula? It's very unlikely this is the first time RAND has wargamed a war between North and South Korea, but it's the first time young girls were given command of the allied forces.
