Women in TSA

Carol Seiler wrote an article in the July 05 caring magazine (a western TSA publication on holistic ministry) concerning women officers in TSA. Unfortunatly the article is not on the web but here is a powerful quote:
Feeling called to ministry, a married woman-in partnership with her husband-vicariously participates through his appointment. Instead of leading the way on this issue, the Army lags behind the culture. By not tackling it head on, the problem grows, and the effect, while subtle and often not personal, is pervasive.


I wonder if any salvationists out there are willing to tackle this issue. In this article Carol addresses both the institution and the coppouts women officers use. My concern is that we have created an atmosphere where we respect the skills abilities of female employees, (but then again how many are in key high paying employee positions?) but we seem to view the value on a female officer only through her husband. The wife simply tags along.

Any thoughts?

Sorry, have not read the article. But somehow I cannot put vicarious participator. And Tolani in the same sentence. Just doesn't work.

Hi Bill,
This is something I've noticed in Australia, too. On a general scale, that is! It's a little weird, looking at our history. I wonder if the Army is actually starting to conform with other churches more in this area...?
