When we look at the theories about the integration process and the roles of women in the military both in Turkey and worldwide, this issue comes forth as controversial and problematic. Although Turkey is the first country which accepted women to military academies, the process of women integration has never been prolonged and there has not been a consensus on women's positions in the military. The implications have always been changeable. The army is the mirror of society and, in Turkey, officers and soldiers come from all over the country and all socio-economic statuses. It is important to investigate the representation and position of women in the military because they will affect the government's policies towards all women in society. This issue is not only important for women's rights but also for citizenship rights of women.
