The topics of war and the military have been considered masculine domains, and this generally used to be the case in the past. Today, the situation has changed. Women serve alongside men in the military in many countries, and the Estonian Defence Forces are no exception.
Four women serving in the Estonian Defence Forces, three officers and a private, participated in the photography project titled Women and National Defence in 2014. The photographs depict the women both in their military uniforms and in festive outfits.
