Abstract [en]

Throughout the last ten years, the Danish Armed Forces has prided itself as an inclusive and diverse workplace, an organization that actively works towards a welcoming environment for all of its employees. In 2011, the Danish Institute for Human Rights awarded the Danish Armed Forces with the so-called MIAPRISEN, an award given to organizations that actively work towards more equal and diverse work environments. Yet this story of being an inclusive and diverse workplace changes to one of an organization engrained with gendered injustices when female veterans of the Danish Armed Forces tell their stories. In their stories, the persistence of sexism and sexual violence paints a legacy of structural gender discrimination within the Danish military. Based on biographical interviews with Danish veterans, this presentation will look at the (re)constitution of gendered injustices in military culture. Exploring these injustices, the presentation will focus on the self-authoritative spaces that female veterans use to formulate resistances and build grounds for activism against gender discrimination in the Danish Armed Forces. As such, this presentation will thus take point of departure in the political efficacy of vulnerability that informs feminist activism as a project of persistent societal change.
