EN The article concerns the role of the women in national security on thewomen military service like example. The key point presentation are history and present circumstances of women military service. I plan present results my own research in this area. I have been researched this issues since 8 years. The army is the institution that has been created by man and for man from many ages. The women have been presented only in especially situation, like the lack of male resources, e.g. Second World War. But the situation has been changed; thanks feministic movement in United States. Nowadays, the women are minority in army. There are dominated masculine style of work and communication. It is connected with gender, culture, stereotypies and society`s mentality. The role of women in army is the projection of women`s role in society in every country. For many soldiers this situation is quite inconvenience because of sexual and gender diversity. They think about women as a problem because this needs a lot of changes in army and social mentality. But the research shows that there are places on the world where the female resources are necessity because the women are the only people who could contact with local civilians
