I am a female and a tactical woman, and we have all felt that this has always been our privilege.
We are not men and have no power over what happens in the world.
But as women in combat, we have a right to be heard, to have our voices heard and to have a voice in how our gender is represented in the media.
The Guardian’s Women in the Combat Project is a project of The Guardian, a UK-based, nonprofit news organisation, and the first ever national conference on gender in combat.
It is organised by women’s organisations across the country, and takes place every year in November.
The women present, many of whom are serving in the military, share their experiences of being deployed and deployed again.
Here is what they have to say: My name is Sarah, I’m a female infantryman, and I’ve been in the army for nearly 20 years, and my military career is all about serving my country.
I served in Afghanistan for two years and I served with the Afghan National Army for one year, as well as being in the British Army.
I’m also a tactical women, which is basically an infantryman who has been in combat for many years.
My gender and my sexuality are not the main reason I do this, but it’s important to me.
We’ve seen the rise of gender-based violence, and gender inequality in our military, and so we want to change that.
In Afghanistan, for example, women were routinely raped and abused in the country’s military and in the local community, which makes us feel that our rights are not being protected.
I’ve fought in Iraq and Afghanistan and I know that we’re often judged as ‘unfeminine’ or ‘not fit for duty’, and when we speak up about gender inequality and sexism in our society, we’re told that our voices are not important.
We have a responsibility to be there for our loved ones, and if we’re not, then we can’t do our jobs.
So, what is the most important thing you learned about the military in Afghanistan?
We had to be ready to fight.
We had no choice.
We were not allowed to be in the front lines, to be the frontline soldiers, or to have any sort of real control over our actions.
We weren’t allowed to take risks, or even to fight, because it’s not something that’s possible in the real world.
It was just like an everyday job for us.
When we came home, we were told that we were not good enough, that we weren’t doing what we were supposed to be doing.
The culture in Afghanistan was really very hostile towards women, and you had to prove yourself to the people.
That was really hard.
We knew that we could never be soldiers, but we were also not allowed any choice.
I don’t think it was until I was in Iraq that I realised that being in combat wasn’t just a job.
I had to fight to survive.
What made you decide to go back?
I felt that I had no other choice.
There was no other option.
The first time I came back from Iraq, I was 17 years old, and had a lot of experience in the armed forces.
I was also a lot more mature.
I could have been a soldier, or I could’ve gone to college, but I chose to do something else.
It wasn’t because I wanted to be a soldier.
I knew that I could be a great soldier, but not in the way that they want us to be.
It just wasn’t the right way to do things.
It’s a very dangerous job, and they’re very tough on women.
They have to protect the soldiers from the men, but they also have to do all of the work of maintaining the military.
In the beginning, the only place where women had any influence was in the kitchens, because they were the ones who had to cook, clean and clean up after the soldiers.
And when the cooks would complain about the mess in the kitchen, the men would complain to their superiors about them.
But then women started to get more involved, and there were even women soldiers.
So I decided to return, and because I knew I would be doing this for a long time, I decided that it was the right thing to do.
How did you feel about being in your first combat deployment?
It was exciting, and at the same time, it was frightening.
It took a lot out of me, because I was a bit nervous about how it would go.
When you come back, what does it feel like to be deployed again?
It’s very liberating.
You have to get used to your new surroundings.
It makes you feel that you’re still a soldier and that you are still part of the armed force, even if you are in Afghanistan or Iraq.
I feel like I’m still part on the ground.
You’re in a safe environment, which has a lot to do
