Female Soldiers Help Cross Cultural Barriersy A. Boyea
The Female Engagement Team is a unique force of women who go past the gaurded security areas and into the streets in order to reach women that need help. These soldiers are no different than their male counterparts, but they are able to do something that, because of cultural aspects of the region, men are not allowed to do in Afghanistan. The female soldiers work hard to create and build relationships with women in Afghanistan so that they can help the women better their lives, and the lives of their loved ones. They hope to expand outside of Afghansitan and apply the same concept of the Female Engagement Team to other areas where cultural sensitivity is an issue.
